Medium ruby, very bright. Medium aromas of violet, cassis and black cherry. On the palate vanilla emerges with an elegant silkiness - full bodied and lots of finesse

Deep ruby with purple highlights, great earthiness on the nose, Lots of minerality without losing the fruit - cassis, black cherry, and plenty of violet. Very complex and yet so agile. Now the tertiary aromas come in - truffle, Sous Bois, tobacco

More powerful than the 2015 Calon, but doesn’t lose elegance or length
more tannin, deeper color, more earthiness, greater emphasis on violet and blackberry, earthy minerality. Firm structure. Lovely spice emergent with time

Medium ruby just beginning to get a brick rim. A bit stemmy on the nose, with some vegetal character and green pepper underpinning the tobacco and minerality. A little cassis and blueberry fruit - 40% merlot in this cépage

On the gradual ride down. Nice secondary fruit. Cranberry, tomato, cedar. Just lovely.

Bing cherry perfection. I make my wine at lafite and latours but my heart is at calon. This wine ain't just for Valentine's folks. The '89 is where it's at!

Already past it’s peak, but beautifully faded red cherry, cassis, touch of vanilla, cedar. dry, mid acidity and astringent tannin, 2002 vintage origin?
