Reviews

WS95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
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)

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.

Full ruby-red color. Very fresh aromas of blackberry cassis licorice and dark chocolate; not at all surmuri Then ripe but aromatic and juicy in the mouth with penetrating rather powerful flavors of dark berries minerals and dark chocolate. 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 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.

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.
