Truffle, smoke, Asian spice, Cuban cigar, earth, cassis, cherry and stone scents are easy to spot. In the mouth, the wine is soft, elegant, and almost exotic. Slightly past fully mature years ago, I imagine this was sublime about a decade ago. Calon Segur is not a wine I have been fond of over the years. After tasting two fully mature examples this year, the 1949 and now the 1953, I need to rethink my opinion on the wine.
Seriously beautiful and enjoyable mature claret. Everything is fully resolved but still in balance, creating a wine that velvety in texture and sweet. Notes of mocha, chocolate, spices and a bit of tobacco. A real treat!
