I suspect this 2001 will shut down (as most young Calon-Seacute;gurs do), although it appears more forward and evolved than the huge, backward, but totally dormant 2000. The plum/ruby-colored 2001 reveals aromas of damp earth, cranberries, cherries, herbs, and forest floor. While lighter than its older sibling, it is medium-bodied, elegant, and should emerge from its post-bottling sleep in 4ndash;5 years, and drink well for 14ndash;15. Think of it as a lighter-weight 1988 (one of the stars of the vintage).

I am going to miss the old style of Calon-Seacute;gur. Gone are the wines like the great but funky 1982, full of animal odors and cedar against a backdrop of fruit. In its place is a modern wine boasting black fruit, lavender, and oak; very good, and well worth buying. But, alas, it is not really the Calon or old.

Deep ruby-red. Captivating aromas of blackcurrant, sweet spices and milk chocolate, nicely lifted by hints of minerals and graphite. Enters the mouth creamy and fruity, with flavors of small berries and plum, then turns somewhat tighter and distinctly minerally on the long, smooth, restrained finish. This is classic claret, a wine admirably combining grace and power, and just one of a string of very fine wines from Calon-Segur in the last ten years. Denise Capbern-Gasqueton is still very active (at 85 years of age) in the day-to-day running of the winery, helped out brilliantly by technical director and winemaker Vincent Millet, who told me that andldquo;the long autumn saved us: in 2008 we started picking the cabs on the day we had finished in 2007.andrdquo;

Perhaps that explains the elegant, but rich style of the 2008 Calon Segur, which is dominated more than usual by Cabernet Sauvignon. Cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare, it is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot. Its sweet perfume of black currants, tobacco leaf, and licorice is followed by a wine with superb purity, good freshness, and a full-bodied style with ripe tannins as well as a long finish. Somewhat reminiscent of the 1996, although this vintage carries a much higher percentage of tannins, and will evolve for 20andndash;25 years. Calon Segurandrsquo;s harvest took place between October 1andndash;16, not particularly late in the context of this vintage.
