Calon-Ségur made a very nice example of the 1985 vintage, with the merlot component here giving the wine a very velvety texture as it closes in on its thirtieth birthday, but with a good structural spine and fine complexity to match. The very suave nose wafts from the glass in a blend of dark berries, black cherries, a touch of cranberry, cigar smoke, charred, dark soil tones, cigarette ash and a whisper of the chipotles to come with further aging. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and round, with a lovely core of fruit, melting tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, elegant and beautifully balanced finish. One of the sleepers of the vintage and quite ready to drink.
