Actually, 2.7 stars. Colour, this wine has a decent and a little bit faded colour. Nose, there are some dust and dirt going on (but very mild), pencil shreds coming through, a little bit of wet stone smell, a hint of dry leaves. Midpalate, most of the flavours are faded, the wine is water-thin, I would say the only thing that stands out is again the pencil shreds but lighter that what I get on the nose. Finish, very light, not very vibrant, but balance and considerably lingering, flavours faded away. Overall, there is no way this wine has been scored 97, especially by RP (my favorite wine critic). This wine lacks structure and complexity. I would say it is very one dimensional (pencil shreds only, again!). This wine is very light, really water-thin! Even though I consider myself as an old world fan, I am 87 on this effort. I can not feel or see this wine as a 97 pointer! Happy drinking!

Really enjoyed this wine. It’s a good example of a Saint-Estephe Bordeaux, especially for a second wine. Bold berry flavors and a super smooth finish that’s satisfying.

Loads of crushed berries, with mineral, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is the sleeper of the vintage. Best after 2010. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Calon Segur 750ml

Full ruby-red color. Very fresh aromas of blackberry cassis licorice and dark chocolate; not at all surmuri Then ripe but aromatic and juicy in the mouth with penetrating rather powerful flavors of dark berries minerals and dark chocolate. Conveys an impression of inner-mouth energy one side-effect of which is that the wine s substantial density is partly hidden today. Finishes with very fine but firm tannins and superb persistence. This is absorbing its 50% new oak very well. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
