Tasting Notes Calon-Segur 2003

94

This shows so wonderfully now with a dense palate yet a delicate chocolate, mineral and walnut skin. Full and velvety. Wonderful with juicy length and a long finish. Almost Burgundian in texture.

Bottled in July, 2005, the saturated ruby/purple-colored 2003 exhibits a tightly-knit, but promising nose of mulberries, blackberries, cherries, and hints of new oak and truffles. This 60% Cabernet Sauvignon / 40% Merlot blend possesses a gorgeous texture as well as an expansive, exotic softness, and 13% alcohol (according to the proprietor, Madame Denise Gasqueton). Generous and rich, this high class, full-bodied wine will undoubtedly be more approachable than its closest spiritual sibling, the 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2030.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's "10-Year On" tasting in London. I have never warmed to the late Mdm. Gasqueton's '03. To be honest, I find too much brettanomyces on the Calon Segur - horsey aromas, as if you were cleaning out the stables! The palate is soft and plush on the entry but unusually for Calon Segur that is little backbone or structure and the finish is very predictable and fades without saying much. Tasted March 2013.
