Château Calon-Ségur

Le Marquis Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Tonight is Daylights savings time and I picked up the 2016 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur from Saint - Estephe. This wine is the 2nd bottling of Châtéau Calon Ségur and it is 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose is black cherry, blackberry, black raspberry, black plum, vanilla, cassis, violets and graphite.

On the palate is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, cassis, green bell pepper, violets, oak and earth.

The wine is medium to full bodied that has a smooth velvety mouth feel with medium + acidity and medium + smooth rounded tannins that leads to a long fresh dark fruit finish. Have a continued enjoyable and safe weekend. Nostrovia. 🍷🍷🍷🍷

@Peter van den Besselaar yes, with the good acidity and tannin structure I am sure there will be many years to come in the life of this bottling.

Killer 3rd wine from 3rd growth Calon Segur - outrageous
9.3

Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1955

Tasted blind. Tawny color, translucent with amber rims. Notes of black cherry, cedar, some spice and a little barnyard floor. Sweet fruit in the mouth, with tannins fully resolved. Guessed 1955 Calon Segur. Perfect looking bottle, the cork revealed this bottle was reconditioned by the Chateau in 2000. — a year ago

Could be a 9.0 but it’s tart and the tannins are slightly too grainy and chewy. — 5 months ago

St. Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2014

Second label of Chateau Phelan-Segur. Black fruits with solid acidity. Not as bold as the primary version. Might even be better with more time. Good QPR. — 2 months ago

Château Phélan Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired le Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Initial Aromas of leather, oak and earthiness hit about, medium(+), bringing in subtle flavors of blackberry and herb. On the palate subtle fruit flavors of blackberry, herb, leather, smoky oak and meatiness carry from the nose. Medium(+) acidity on firm medium(+) tannins of this full body wine carry the flavors to a medium(+) length finish. Very good, but undelivered a bit, drink now will not get better. — 5 months ago

Le Petit Calon Saint-Estephe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Big Red Bordeaux yet so approachable. A nice blend from one of my favorite houses - an almost toned down version due to the nice blend, mature red fruit and that trademark French soil sings through. You could live on just this and some cheese. — a year ago
