2nd Wine of Château Calon Ségur St Estephe
Wine Advocate 93 points.
“Quality at Calon-Ségur has been on an upward trajectory in recent years” and this second wine of the estate is ample 93-point proof! An opulent, ripe, firm-framed 2018 packed with crème de cassis, plum preserve and exotic spice.
Another second wine from this brilliant vintage that tastes more like a grand vin, the 2018 Le Marquis de Calon Segur offers a full-bodied, ripe, incredibly sexy profile that carries terrific amounts of currants, plums, graphite, and leafy herb-like aromas and flavors. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 30% new French oak, it’s a head turner that’s going to drink spectacularly well right out of the gate.
