Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

This was my contribution. Someone else brought a ‘96 Calon Segur and it seemed to just be entering its drinking window, so needless to say, even at 13yrs old (with a 3hr decant), this was young. The nose was full of saddle leather, herbs de Provence and underripe red and black fruits. The palate showed bayleaf and cherry swisher sweets (a note I seem to get often with St Estephe wines with age). A touch thin at the front, full on the mid palate and tart and tannic in the finish. Tons of acidity here as well. Unless you’re double decanting for 6+ hours, I’d hold another 5 years.

@Jason Brater : I’ve had it a few times and enjoy it. Another one that ages at a glacial pace!

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. — 6 months ago

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Owned by Château Calon Ségur. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot & 4% Petit Verdot and aged in 60% new oak. Fresh red fruit aromas, with aromatic herb spice. On the palate black cherries and plums, cacao, rustic herbs and earthy tones. Fine gripping tannins, nice balance ending with earthy mineral tones and fruit finish.
Nice value. Tasting Sample.

Le Marquis Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

This second wine of the property uses both older and younger vines and lots of merlot (though this will change over time). 30% new oak for 17 months
Medium ruby with a lovely bit of blueberry, blackberry and cassis on the nose. Some well-balanced oak on the palate. and a lovely long finish. Quite soft and elegant, with just enough tannin to give it structure and a bit of spice

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Good structure for a value second label from Calon-Ségur. Good fruit. Blackberry, smoke, and graphite. Some tannins so a short decant is ideal. — 2 years ago
