2017 Marquis de Calon, Saint-Estèphe

An expressive nose with floral and slightly herby characters. The palate is rounded, but there's still crunchy acidity with a nice structure and backbone behind that.

TASTING NOTES

Fresh and delicate with firm tannins and a crisp finish. Medium body and a bright currant and dark-cherry character. Second wine of Calon.
