2005 Chateau Calon-Segur St. Estephe

Wine Description

(From 1995 Vintage) Incredible nose of crushed berries, flowers, spices and nuts. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Powerful and solid. Builds on the palate.

Full-bodied, moderately tannic and set for an extremely long life.
