Blending 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot produced a tannic, rich, powerful wine that expresses earth, forest floor, tobacco, blackberry, cassis and spice. Fresh, tannic and balanced, give this 10-15 years to soften, open and develop.
Calon-Ségur is one of the most surprising wines of the vintage!A dense purple color is followed by notes of kirsch,strawberries,licorice,flowers and graphite.The palate is full-bodied,silky,fresh and precise with very good depth and length.A unique combination of classical and modern style!!This is capable of lasting 30-40 years!Fantastic value for money!!!
Tannic, vegetal at very beginning. At first it was stronger on nose rather than palate. I can sense there were more things hiding beneath, but cannot reach.
Glad it opened around 3 hrs. Acidic Coffee, rich berry, honey, chestnut cake. Creamy creamy!
After taste still shows this is young wine, surely it will develop.
Comment from Wife (Sorry in Chinese): 醒酒3hr後聞起來清甜帶點pink,像少女細緻美麗，臉頰仍撲撲帶粉的。入口是細膩的甜味，尾韻是橡木桶的澀味，有絲稠般spark,no wonder 酒標是愛心。風味柔美蜿蜒，最上層滿溢的是creamy的愛，但中下層卻是深不見底的柔情。她的世界是圓形3D而非用遼闊形容，尾韻會勾人故酒體是女性。一個小時前的空洞感消失了，之前是在生長血肉吧，醒酒真是一件神奇的事情。
TN: Calon Segur vertical (Ripple Restaurant in DC): This is a classic claret from an excellent vintage. Fresh red fruit driven nose, very strong lead pencil and mineral notes, a hint of green and cedar. Excellent concentration, mineral and sweet tannins. This along the 09 will require minimum twenty years to reach the first stage of peak. I doubt that these will shut down really hard especially the 09. Both nicely representing the respective vintages.
