2012 Château Calon-Ségur, Cru Classé St-Estèphe

Both Calon-Ségur and Capbern-Gasqueton were sold following the death of the indomitable Madame Gasqueton, but Vincent Millet was retained as technical director by the new owners. Incredibly pretty on the nose, with notes of red berries, white flowers and wet slate. The palate is attractive and well-balanced, with intense fruit expression and a flinty mineral backbone, melding with soft, subtle sweet oak. Elegant rather than austere, Calon is always one of the most refined wines in any vintage and this is no exception.

(Rober Parket Score 90-92)
