Chateau Calon Segur 2005: the nobility of Saint-Estephe
As a Third Classified Growth of 1855, Chateau Calon Segur is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc with the origins of Calon dating back to the Gallo-Roman era. Later, in the eighteenth century, the property takes a new course with the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Segur, who was the owner of the Latour, Lafite and Mouton estates.
The 2005 vintage is an exceptional one in Bordeaux. From Chateau Calon Segur on the great terroir of Saint-Estephe, the vintage produces a wine of great quality that is marked by the signature finesse and elegance of the estate. The vintage respects the balance between exceptional intensity and great suppleness, and the tannins are present and full of finesse, which give a caressing and dense texture. The Chateau Calon Segur 2005 presents pleasant aromas of black fruits (black cherry in particular), touches of chocolate, spices, dried fruits and even leather. This wine from Saint-Estephe is ready to drink now or can be aged until 2045-2050.
