Chateau Calon-Segur Saint Estephe

Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 1998 Vintage) It exhibits plenty of complexity in its earthy, truffle, black cherry, currant, plum, and herb-scented bouquet as well as flavors. Moderately tannic, with good weight, it is a classically-styled 1998.

Winemaker's Notes

Full red-ruby. Musky aromas of tart red berries, smoke and meat, with a light medicinal nuance. Suave on entry, then rather tightly wound, even a bit youthfully dry. Fairly rich wine, but the redcurrant, smoke and spice flavors are presently dominated by solid underlying structure. Finishes firmly tannic, with sneaky persistence.

    Touched by the "Love" of this wine. Decanted for over an hour, first sip was already magically deep. I could taste a little chocolate, a little over-burnt bread, a little wood, and so much of love.
