2011 Château Calon-Ségur, Cru Classé St-Estèphe
The addition of a small percentage of the late ripening petit-verdot has added a touch of florality to the red berry, cedar wood, and tobacco inflected nose. The vibrant berry fruit laden palate retains a real sense of poise and vigour, with tannins that are neither forced nor over-worked yet powerfully structured. An organoleptic, cerebral delight and a real masterclass in thoughtful and considered winemaking.
