Château Calon-Ségur 2014 is a Saint-Estèphe wine of beautiful depth. The nose is rich, concentrated and aromatic with very fresh aromas, dominated by black fruits and notes of liquorice. The entry into the mouth is precise and the wine develops beautifully on the mid-palate with rich tannins characterised by very silky edges. The wine has great density with a juicy and long finish. This vintage seems to have gained plenty from the terroir, resulting in a wine with great precision and a sophisticated tannic structure.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Calon Ségur has a much more reticent bouquet than either the 2014 Montrose or Cos d'Estournel. There is blackberry here, a hint of cassis and violets, fine purity but bolshie and withdrawn at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, more red fruit than the Montrose with a smooth, quite silky Merlot-like, graphite finish. Tasted on two occasions in Bordeaux, the second bottle exuded more panache and joie-de-vivre, coming across a little more spicy with a longer aftertaste.
