Château Calon-Ségur 2012
The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot. The wine spent 19 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Drink now-2042.
Calon Ségur is definitely one of the most dynamic and exciting reemerging properties in Bordeaux today. It will be fascinating to see what the new team headed by Estate Manager Laurent Dufau does here over the coming years.
The 2012 Calon-Ségur, has an opaque ruby/purple color, very sweet black raspberry, black cherry and currant fruit, underlying forest floor notes, wonderfully sweet tannin, surprising up-front opulence and beautiful purity, texture and length.
