Chateau Calon Segur St Estephe 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The started picking at Calon on the 3rd September with the Merlot. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. This is well done and reminds me of the 1996 at this stage, which was excellent. Pretty aromas of spices, berry and earth follow through to a full body, with firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Very fresh...91-92" JS 04/12 "...A very strong effort (this property was untouched by the hail storm that swept through the area on September 1), it boasts an opaque purple color as well as surprisingly sweet tannin and abundant quantities of black cherry, black currant and dusty, loamy scents. Medium to full-bodied with beautifully integrated tannins and sensational purity and length, this super effort is a wonderful homage to the memory of Madame Gasqueton. Moreover, it is potentially one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage and should drink well for 25 or more years...92-94" WA 04/12

78% cabernet sauvignon 20% merlot and 2% petit verdot. 13.3% alcohol. Located northwest of the village of St Estephe Calon Segur represents 50% of all production from a total producing area of 29 hectares. Average vine age is 37 years planted in brown clay gravel and sand. Brilliant intense ruby core with a small magenta rim. A bouquet of spring flowers with warm blackberry compote progresses to aromas of pain grille and charcoal. Ripe black cherry and cassis present a sweet rich and explosive entry flavors linger along with comforting tannins that build to a very approachable balanced and long finish. Enjoy from 2018-2030. Tasted twice. Andy Frieden.
