Reviews for 2003 Calon Segur Bordeaux Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2006
Loads of crushed berries with mineral lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied with big velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. This is the sleeper of the vintage. Best after 2010. (JS)

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, July 2013
This shows so wonderfully now with a dense palate yet a delicate chocolate, mineral and walnut skin. Full and velvety. Wonderful with juicy length and a long finish. Almost Burgundian in texture.

The fruit, under these tannins, is pure, ripe, black and generous. But there is the proper dryness that shows how the team at Calon-Sègur managed to tame some of the excesses of the 2003 vintage. This will develop, slowly, into a great wine.

Conveys an impression of inner-mouth energy one side-effect of which is that the wine's substantial density is partly hidden today. Finishes with very fine but firm tannins and superb persistence. This is absorbing its 50% new oak very well.

This beautiful 2003 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, a vigorous youthfulness, and plenty of mulberry, black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with notions of cedarwood, baking spices and roasted herbs. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, fresh and precise, this wine is just hitting full maturity where it should remain for another 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
