Chateau Calon-Segur, Saint-Estephe, France, Magnum, 2005Regular price $399.99
Third Growth. Troisieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855.
Expert tasting note: "Deep, ruby-red color is very nearly opaque. Dark fruit on the nose is overlaid with earthy aromas. Earthy notes again compliment intense black-cherry fruit on the palate, The fruit is supple & juicy with nice acidity & a dusty tannic structure. The plentiful tannins dry out the mid-palate. Alcohol is balance & the firm, fine tannins last well. This is a high-quality, classically-styled wine as is typical of wines from this property." - 11/09 DCAMW
