2015 Saint-Estephe 3e Cru Classe
The Merlots, with measured volume, bring luscious fruit to the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds elegance, and remarkable crystal-like tension. This 3e Cru Classe already shows perfect balance and silky tannins. With a few more months of ageing, 2015 Chateau Calon Segur should prove a serious contender in the Saint-Estephe appellation.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Calon-Segur was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 20 months. It has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of warm blackberries, cassis, black cherries and licorice with touches of roses and dark chocolate. The medium-bodied palate is firm and chewy with good concentration and a spicy finish.
