The 2006 edition of this esteemed Grand Cru seems ready for drinking - the nose is oriented toward cassis and cedar with a hint of raw sugar and evokes something very traditionally feminine - like dresses packed with old flowers. On the palate, there is good purity of flavour with some root, metal and tea tannin along with a good dose of sweet Himalayan blackberry. Not dense, but clean, creamy and balanced. You could do, but no need to hold further. 90 points.

A lovely wine with a solid core of fruit, silky tannins and chocolate, berry and light spice character. Long and balanced.

The harvest at this estate was relatively late for the vintage (September 26-October 15), and approximately two-thirds of the production made it into the final blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The 2006 is highly successful, as Madame Gasqueton said, no doubt because of the de-leafing and crop-thinning done throughout the summer. A deep dark ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a sweet nose of black cherries, damp earth, and a hint of herbs. Medium-bodied with surprisingly soft tannin, no austerity, decent acidity, and a fruit-forward, fleshy personality, it should be accessible at an earlier age than the blockbuster 2005

A blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2006 Calon Segur is an elegant, classic effort that represents about 60% of their total production. Deep ruby, with forest floor, cassis, black cherry, and soil undertones in bot... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Calon Segur 375ml
