Tasting Notes Calon-Segur 1986

92-94

The great Madame Denise Gasqueton, a Bordeaux icon whom I always visited early in the morning (8:15 a.m. for nearly 20 consecutive years), passed away on the first day of the 2011 harvest. The 2011 Calon-Segur is a fitting tribute to her extraordinary passion and love for this fabulous estate in the northern sector of St.-Estephe. A very strong effort (this property was untouched by the hail storm that swept through the area on September 1), it boasts an opaque purple color as well as surprisingly sweet tannin and abundant quantities of black cherry, black currant and dusty, loamy scents. Medium to full-bodied with beautifully integrated tannins and sensational purity and length, this super effort is a wonderful homage to the memory of Madame Gasqueton. Moreover, it is potentially one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage and should drink well for 25 or more years.

Dark garnet. A soft nose of forest floor, cedar and minerals. The palate has supple, quite light tannins considering this is a 1986. Perhaps lacking depth but generous and open-knit on the cedary mid-palate. Cigar box and pencil lead on the finish. Drinking now. Fine - but don't leave too long. Tasted April 2001.
