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!

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.

A Classic Saint-Estèphe, the Calon-Ségur 2000 offers up sumptuous aromas of steeped blackberries, forest floor, wet wood, game, char, asphalt, saddle leather, violets, and brown sugar. The influence of the estate vineyard's deep gravelly soils is evident in the nose and in a delicate vein of minerality, that sits like filagree atop velvety, caressing tannins. It's developed nicely, with no hard edges and a pleasing and lengthy finish.
