Tasting Notes Calon-Segur 1989
This is just a shade deeper in colour than the 1990 Calon-Segur. The nose has a little more freshness than the 1990 but is half the fun. A little pointed, earthy and minerally, sous-bois, tree bark
This property has turned in a very good effort in 1989. It possesses a deep ruby/garnet color, a sweet, chewy, dense texture, full body, plenty of alcohol, and moderately high tannin. Quite precocious, it will have a life span of at least 15 years. It reminded me of a downsized version of the 1982, but slightly more rustic. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 8/97.
