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.

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
