Fantastic Cru Bourgeois from St Estephe, where clay soil lends freshness and balance to make elegant and finely structured wines. Made by the Calon Segur team who have mastered a classy balance of oak and cabernet sauvignon fruit. Best after an hour in a decanter. Absolutely perfect with roast lamb or beef.
“Tasted blind. Very dark crimson. Focused, quite intense nose. Lovely rich fruit on the front palate. Then quite a mass of tannin but well covered by the glorious fruit. Not that much made.”
