2014 Marquis de Calon, Saint-Estèphe
Marquis de Calon is the second wine of Calon-Ségur, crafted from 64% Merlot, with the rest made up with Cabernet Sauvignon from the younger vines on the estate. Without any of the August rain that slowed down ripening of the Merlots in the Médoc, the team at Calon-Ségur were picking theirs a potential alcohol reaching up to 15.5-16% in some parcels. The freshness and firm tannic structure from the Cabernet were therefore indispensable to balance all this rich, opulent and seductive fruit. The result is understandably very ripe, dense and exotic but the acidity and tannic structure are there, keeping everything nicely in balance.
