Dark red purple. Inviting nose of black berry and black currant. Echoed on the medium full palate with hints of graphite and patent leather. Medium non-assertive tannins most present on the back palate leads to the medium long finish. Medium acidity and silky oak makes this second label a nice entry point into Bordeaux for the New World enthusiast. Fine cuts of beef with Bordelaise is a natural of course. Drink now through 2028 while waiting for Calon-Segur to ripen. — 7 months ago

Even better than the last bottle, though I slouched and drank it with cheese/crackers/fruit and on day two with grilled chicken, bulghur pilaf, stewed yellow squash and tomato/cucumber/feta/parsley salad.
Serious, savory, stony, sapid, vibrant, lively and delicious. A great value for what I paid, under $50 US, less of a good value from wine searcher at around $400 these days. #CellarYourOwn — 2 months ago
Well well well. Delivered in spades despite it being a furtive end-of-evening PnP. Super classic, beautiful stable fruit and wood. Huge length. WOTN for me if only that the ‘96 Calon was still so young. — a year ago
