WS95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
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. Give it time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective... Incredible nose of crushed berries, flowers, spices and nuts. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Powerful and solid.

As I have said many times since I first tasted this wine the 1995 Calon-Segur is one of the great sleepers of the vintage (I bought the wine as a future for a mere $250 a case). The wine has closed down completely since bottling but it is a sensational effort that may ultimately merit an even higher score. The wine is opaque purple-colored. With coaxing the tight aromatics reveal some weedy cassis intertwined with truffles chocolate and beef blood-like aromas. On the palate there is an element of sur-maturite (1995 was an extremely late harvest at Calon-Segur) fabulous density and purity and a boatload of tannin. This deep broodingly backward classic Bordeaux will require a decade of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2035.

Black cherry leather olive and a hint of crystallized berries; fresher on the nose than the '97. Sweet firmly structured and very nicely balanced with strong but integrated acidity and very good flavor definition. Tannins are ripe and fine. 91 points

Still very dark ruby and with an admirably complex, evolved nose that is more mineral than fruity. Very classic emissary from its appellation with marked acidity and still some tannin. Firm, correct, I served it in honour... Still very dark ruby and with an admirably complex, evolved nose that is more mineral than fruity. Very classic emissary from its appellation with marked acidity and still some tannin. Firm, correct, I served it in honour of the late Mme Capbern Gasqueton. You could serve this already if you took care with the food and any other wine served alongside, ensuring that both were relatively chewy. 17/20
