Black cherries, licorice, spice, and smoky mint aromas hit the perfume.

This will be easy to enjoy on release, and for over the next decade. The wine is a blend of 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink from 2024-2035.

Sweet, robust, fleshy and chewy, there is a cool, spicy quality to the fruit with a savory character on the nose and palate. The wine ends with loads of juicy, chewy, firm fruits. This baby Calon Segur is perfect to enjoy while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. As good as it is, let it age for 3-5 years before pulling a cork and it will be even better 92-94 Pts

Much better in bottle than in barrel, it is hard to believe this is a second wine. The spice, smoke, tobacco leaf and red fruit nose pops with ease.

Smoky, dark red berries and spice create the perfume. On the palate, the wine has delectable dark fruits, supple textures, forward style and scrumptiousness to the fruits in the finish.

A few of age has really added a lot to this wine. Just great right out of the bottle, the wine is round, soft, fruity, fresh and earthy with a nice, smaller resemblance to the Grand Vin. This is a fine introduction into what's going on with Calon Segur these days.

Fruity, fresh and approachable, this wine was produced from 64% Merlot and 36% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its sweet blackberry profile conceals the 14.7% ABV. It should be fun to drink on release. 86-88 Pts
