    ($110) Deep, bright ruby-red. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, leather, smoked meat, earth and menthol. Chewy, brooding and deep, with concentrated black cherry, menthol, mineral and leather flavors framed by a powerful spine of acids and tannins. Really saturates the palate on the tannic back end. I'd give this classic St. Estephe a decade of aging, at which time this wine may well merit an even higher score.

    Has a beautiful nose of crushed berry, spices and nutmeg, with a hint of coffee. Then turns to licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long finish of vanilla, berry and cinnamon.

    The 2005 is a beautiful Calon Segur, with sweet mocha, black cherry, leathery fruit, medium to full body, attractive purity, a gorgeous texture, and serious nobility, gravitas and density. Drink it over the next 20-30 years, yet it is surprisingly accessible.

    Very dark. Sweet and furry with very harsh acidity and drying tannins. Rather a caricature. Bitter finish.

    Spicy (cinnamon?) both smell and taste. Pencil shavings and anise. At Hi-Time Bordeaux 2005 tasting.

Chateau Calon-Segur is a 3eme Cru Classe estate located in St. Estephe. The property consists of a 74-hectare vineyard that grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The recognizable heart motif on the labels stems from the original owner, Marquis de Segur, who declared, "My heart belongs to Calon," despite owning such estates as Lafite and Latour. Since 1894, the chateau has been owned by the Gasqueton family. Recent successful vintages include 1995, 1996 and 2000. Calon-Segur is typified by its notable strength and concentrated fruit.
