Château Marquis de Calon Saint-Estèphe 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"This bastion of traditionally made wine has fashioned a firm structured, potentially long-lived blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. An opaque ruby/purple colour is followed by a moderately closed, but promising nose of red and black fruits interwoven with loamy soil and underbrush notes. Nicely textured, medium to full-bodied, high in tannins, but oh so backward. It is hard to compare it to other vintages but it may be a modern day rendition of the brilliant 1988 (One of the Medocs of the vintage). Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025." 89-91/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Oct-2003)

As my last name is on the bottle, this wine has always held high in my view. I'm biased I know, but in my opinion this is as good as it gets. So perfect in every way. It's got a beautiful nose, just the right amount of tannins, amazing body, and perfect for a meal. Not a cheap bottle, but something to be enjoyed on a special occasion. I love this wine.

Aromas of crushed berries, cassis, blueberries and spice. Full-bodied and rich with a tannic structure that will hold for years. Drinking well today but still has material to age for years.
