The 2014 Calon Ségur is a real show-stopper. Unusually ripe, powerful and seductive, the wine exudes class. Myriad shades of plum, sweet red cherry, pomegranate, spice and blood orange are all on display. Wild flowers, tobacco and host of more aromatic notes develop in the glass. Above all else, though, the 2014 is a wine of pure power and breadth. This is yet another fabulous showing for the 2014 Calon Ségur, a wine that vies for top honors in this vintage. Don't miss it. The blend is 67 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 % Merlot, 15 % Cabernet Franc and 2 % Petit Verdot. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2017)

Silky and smooth attack. Coating the whole palate, tannins are more subtle and fine than the marquis de calon. This is an elegant wine and for the vintage and appellation, it's a winner. I prefer this to the Montrose!

Rose geranium and pickled fennel, aka ode to Robert Jancis? Maybe, love does come in many forms!

Very refined, has a nice long even finish. Tannins still present but not overpowering, has a undertone of leather, currants and dried herbs. Very pleasant.

Textbook Bordeaux! With 20yrs of age comes lots of secondary flavors: tobacco, olives, soil, and green pepper. A red current note still holds the wine to be pleasurable with velvet tannins.
