Château Calon-Ségur Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé de Calon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Calon-Segur has a very fragrant bouquet with perfumed raspberry coulis, fresh strawberry, limestone and a hint of dried rose petals – very feminine for Calon-Segur – certainly a Saint Estèphe with great breeding. The palate is medium-bodied with superb acidity right from the start. It is taut, tightly coiled, brilliantly focused and though it does possess the bravura of Cos d’Estournel’s its precision and linearity is enthralling. Again, there is that graphite note just coming through on the aftertaste. This is classic Saint Estephe and a testament to the late Mme Gasqueton...95" Neil Martin's Wine Journal WA 02/13 "A dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of plums, kirsch, licorice, incense and herbs. Full-bodied, moderately tannic, pure, fresh and precise, this beauty will require lots of patience from prospective purchasers...92-94+" WA 5/11 "Sure pure fruit to this red with a minerality and floral undertone. You can smell the warm stones. Full body, with a beautiful depth of fruit and velvety tannins. Dense and balanced. Layered with a light salty and meaty character as well. Great length. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon...96" JamesSuckling.com 02/13

Pure dark vanilla-laced fruit but also a lovely leafy fragrance. Great combination of sweet ripe fruit and fresh fine tannins. Succulent and very long. 18/20 (JH) Jancis Robinson.

Bright full medium ruby. Deep aromas of cassis cigar box olive tapenade and licorice. Then vinous and penetrating in the mouth with excellent lift to its complex flavors of dried cherry cassis tobacco flowers minerals and spices. Wonderfully suave but youthfully backward wine with a very long smooth finish featuring noble tannins and fresh acidity. This will need a good eight to ten years to expand in bottle and should be long-lived. 93+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
