Region:

Bordeaux

Appellation:

St Estèphe

Grape Blend:

Cab. Sauvignon | Merlot

Marquis de Calon Ségur, St Estèphe, 2016

Tasting Note:

Calon Segur's second label suffers by comparison to the wonderful Capbern. If we didn't taste the sister estate, we'd probably think this is an excellent second wine. Much of the declassified Merlot from Calon goes into the blend and this dominates the character which is dominated by sweet cherry and blackcurrant jam notes. It is definitely at the ripe end of the spectrum and to our mind less refined than Capbern.
