Château Calon Ségur 2017

Saint-Estèphe, Bordeaux

OWC

Colour
92-94
93-95

"The 2017 Calon-Ségur was cropped at 43.5hl/ha and underwent a 20-day cuvaison after which it is matured entirely in new oak for 20 months. It contains 13.2° alcohol. At the moment the aromatics convey the 100% new oak but there is sufficient fruit underneath. There is a palpable sense of “coolness” imbuing the aromatics and like other Saint-Estèphe barrel samples, it conveys a subtle estuary-like tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, beautifully integrated new oak that lends this a silky texture. Perhaps this is the smoothest of all the 2017s I encountered within this appellation, a classy and sophisticated Calon-Ségur in the making and heightened by the thrilling tension towards the finish and the latent energy that lingers in the mouth. Excellent. Drink 92-94." Neal Martin

"Fresh dark berry aromas, floral with white pepper nuances. Fleshy, textured red and blackberry fruit, earthy spice and mineral notes on the palate. This is robust, medium full and supported by silky tannins, vibrant acidity and moderate 13.2% alcohol. Delightfully charming. Drink from 2025+" L'Assemblage Ltd
