Château Calon-Segur 2018
Calon-Ségur carries the power of the vintage beautifully. The bouquet is boldly aromatic, complex with incense and aromatic spices. On the palate, there is great length and structure but with a concentrated creamy flow of fruit across the palate. This is very fine indeed, forthcoming but with further expression held in reserve. Drink 2028-2050.
Produced by Château Calon-Ségur
Château Calon-Ségur is a winery in the Saint-Estèphe appellation of the Bordeaux wine region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus Classés (Third Growths) in the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. It is the northernmost classified growth in the Médoc.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Calon Segur gallops out with bold scents of creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, and redcurrant jelly, plus suggestions of violets, menthol, forest floor, and clove oil with perfumed wafts of roses and sandalwood. Full-bodied, the palate is concentrated and impactful with velvety tannins and seamless freshness supporting the multilayered fruit, finishing long and achingly seductive.
