Redcurrant cedar violet and fresh herbs on the nose plus a whiff of minty minerals. Supple sweet and easygoing in the mouth with pure strawberry and red cherry flavors high but harmonious acids and a smooth mouthcoating texture. Only 50% of the estate's total production went into the grand vin.

A blend 78% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot and this includes the vin de presse. It has a refined bouquet of dark berries wild hedgerow and a touch of rose petals and seems lighter than the 2009 or 2010 although it displays fine delineation and sense of femininity. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasing rounded entry where the Merlot neatly fleshes out the Cabernet. It is not a complex Calon Segur neither does it possess the spine-tingling backbone and tension of the 2010. But is has a satisfying purity and a lovely smooth silky texture towards the finish and a minerally aftertaste that lingers longer than I expected. This may merit a higher score after bottling. Tasted April 2012.

A red with wonderful aromas of blackberries, spices and plums that follow through to a full body, with lovely integrated tannins and a polished, fine finish. Better in 2017.

Its bigger sister, the well-made 2011 Calon Segur boasts a dense ruby/purple color, sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of earth, oak and spice, medium body, moderate tannin, a pure mouthfeel and a long finish. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and enjoy it over the next 10-15 years. - Robert Parker

Located northwest of the village of St Estephe Calon Segur represents 50% of all production from a total producing area of 29 hectares. Average vine age is 37 years planted in brown clay gravel and sand. Brilliant intense ruby core with a small magenta rim. A bouquet of spring flowers with warm blackberry compote progresses to aromas of pain grille and charcoal. Ripe black cherry and cassis present a sweet rich and explosive entry flavors linger along with comforting tannins that build to a very approachable balanced and long finish. Enjoy from 2018-2030. Tasted twice.
