Château Calon-Ségur Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé de Calon 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 92 As I have said many times since I first tasted this wine, the 1995 Calon-Segur is one of the great sleepers of the vintage (I bought the wine as a future for a mere $250 a case). The wine has closed down completely since bottling, but it is a sensational effort that may ultimately merit an even higher score. The wine is opaque purple-colored. With coaxing, the tight aromatics reveal some weedy cassis intertwined with truffles, chocolate, and beef blood-like aromas. On the palate, there is an element of sur-maturite (1995 was an extremely late harvest at Calon-Segur), fabulous density and purity, and a boatload of tannin. This deep, broodingly backward, classic Bordeaux will require a decade of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2035.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Nose of black fruit and earth. Taste of black cherry, hints of earth and tea and leather and dusty bushes and some spice with strong smooth tannins. Medium to full body, medium acid, medium plus tannis, dry, tasty. Balanced.

Good deep red-ruby color. Black cherry, leather, olive and a hint of crystallized berries; fresher on the nose than the '97. Sweet, firmly structured and very nicely balanced, with strong but integrated acidity and very good flavor definition. Tannin... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

The 1995 may be the most impressive Calon-Segur since 1988. The deep, healthy dark ruby/purple color is followed by a nose without any of the kinky, earthy, musty barrel smells that often afflict Calon-Segur. Although backward, the wine reveals terri...
