|Grapes||Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cab Sauv|
77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot. This wine opened the low-key but very impressive tasting at Chateau Calon Segur. Pretty red-fruited nose, quite bright and floral. Palate more serious lovely power and push at core. This is poised and classy stuff. Beautiful balance, recommended.
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.
With precocious fruit and exceptional balance this is a wonderful wine with masses of class and style.

Great purity of Cabernet dominated fruit, firm flavours with fine depth, precision, structure and length, very good indeed, classed growth standard.
Drink: 2016 - 2026.

Open and readable on the nose. Easy and perhaps a little too slack for the long term. 2017 - 2030.

A blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, the Capbern Gasqueton has a fragrant nose with nicely controlled red berry fruit and nicely integrated oak. It becomes more floral with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, perhaps a little rustic on the spicy opening. The tannins are forward and firm with a bold slightly peppery finish. It does not quite have the finesse of the 2010 but it should have plenty of character.

Black fruits dominate the nose lots of rich flavours. The palate has depth black plum and cassis all supported by firm tannins. The sweetness and power are balanced by fresher herbal black cherry which gives a lighter feel on the back palate yet it finishes with power.
