Tasting Note:

This will undoubtedly be one of the best value buys from 2010. Produced by the Calon Segur team, the vineyards lie to the south of St Estephe town between Montrose and Phelan Segur. Good terroir, good wine-making team - sensational result. Tight knit with aromas of damsons, cassis and dark hedgerow fruit. On the palate there is sumptuous cherry and raspberry fruit. The flavours are long and noble with lovely purity and balance. A St Estephe with finesse, superb texture and filigree tannins. 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot with 10% press wine.
