2001 Chateau Calon-Segur Saint-Estephe
The ever-gracious Madame Gasqueton greeted us warmly at 8.30am as her first<br/>tasters of the week. As always, Calon served as an excellent benchmark, and a<br/>tough act to follow, for the rest of the 2001s that we went on to taste. This<br/>has a fabulous nose of warm, exotic herbs and spices followed by a harmonious<br/>palate with a good concentration of minerally fruit, ripe tannins and tobacco<br/>and chocolate notes. The blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 15%<br/>Cabernet Franc combines beautifully to create a Claret-lover's dream.
SParker score: 89/100
