A chewy, structured red with blackberry, chocolate and some walnut and bark. It’s full-bodied and solid with lots of fruit and tannins. Second wine of Calon Segur. Needs five or six years to soften. Try after 2026.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Le Marquis de Calon Segur rolls out effortlessly with exuberant notes of baked black cherries, warm cassis, and blueberry compote, plus hints of unsmoked cigars, dried roses, and fragrant earth. Full-bodied and concentrated, the palate has velvety tannins and is packed with perfumed fruit, finishing long and lively.
Tasted blind. Weak rim. Gentle nose and quite a sweet start. Dry finish. Easy to like, but with a little alcohol on the end. 15%
Drink 2027– 2040
