Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) A pretty nose of raspberry and blackcurrant coulis leads to an elegant palate of fresh bramble fruit and black cherries. Calon-Segur is not a powerful wine in 2009 but it is sophisticated with fine, gentle tannins and a twist of sweet spice on the finish.

    Nose is light terroir, chocolate, prune, heavy, sandpapery tannins that stay on the toungue. Very good, but too tannic.
