CHÂTEAU CALON SÉGUR
1996 3ème Cru Classé Saint Estèphe
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot|
|Classification||3ème Cru Classé|
The 1996 may not be as profound as I had predicted from cask, but it is an exceptional wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed with cassis, it possesses outstanding purity, and considerable tannin in the finish. This classic, medium to full-bodied, traditionally made wine improves dramatically with airing, suggesting it will have a very long life. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2028.
