Tasting Notes Calon-Segur 2005

95

A deep purple/garnet core. Limpid. This has a stunning nose, brilliant definition and surfeit with fruit intensity, waves of blackberry, black olive, cassis, blueberry and vanillary oak. The palate is full-bodied, very backward but super smooth with silky cashmere tannins. Blackberry, cassis, a touch of blueberry and a lot of new oak on the finish. This is a sexy Calon-Segur, atypically modern in style, beautifully crafted and destined for a long future. So much finesse. Wonderful.  Drink 2018-2040. Tasted November 2008.

A dense, structured red with beautiful aromas of chocolate, hazelnut, dried spices and currants. Full body with superfine tannins and a tight finish. This is a wine that is just beginning to be drinkable but has a long, long life ahead of it. Taste now and dream of the future. Better in 2016.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the totally closed 2005 Calon Segur is one of those traditionally made, backstrapping, uncompromising Bordeaux that will last 30-40 or more years. Its dense ruby color with purple nuances is followed by a nose that reluctantly offers up scents of damp earth, wood smoke, black cherries, cassis, and an exotic Asian spice character. The wine is formidably endowed and broodingly tannic, with noticeable acidity and a structured, nearly impenetrable mouthfeel. Nevertheless, it is easy to sense the weight, extract, and richness in this pure, deep wine. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050.
