Château Calon-Ségur Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé de Calon 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker said: 'The 1986 possesses a deep ruby/garnet color, with a tight, yet ripe, black currant bouquet backed up with subtle scents of herb, cedar, and sweet oak. On the palate, the wine is muscular, rich, and medium to full-bodied, with a pronounced smoky, mineral, and currant character. It has fine length, with some rustic tannin still noticeable in the finish. Curiously, in this vintage Calon-Segur used an inordinately high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot). Normally the percentage of Merlot is significantly higher. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2015.'
