CHÂTEAU CALON-SÉGUR 2000 (3) 94 WA


CHÂTEAU CALON-SÉGUR 2000 SAINT-ESTÈPHE. 3IÈME CRU CLASSÉ TASTED FROM AN EX-CHÂTEAU BOTTLE AT BI WINE & SPIRITS CALON-SEGUR DINNER IN LONDON. THE 2000 CALON SEGUR IS ONE OF THOSE WINES THAT REMINDS YOU HOW GREAT THE MILLENNIAL VINTAGE COULD BE. NOW AT FIFTEEN YEARS OLD, IT HAS A BRILLIANT, VIVACIOUS RED BERRY NOSE INFUSED WITH ASH AND CIGAR BOX AROMAS. THE DETAIL HERE IS A BEGUILING AND IT JUST "SINGS" SAINT ESTÈPHE. THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED WITH DENSE, FIRM TANNIN THAT PROVIDE A RIGID BACKBONE, BUT IT IS SWATHED IN COPIOUS TOBACCO-DRENCHED BLACK FRUIT AND A SUPERB LINE OF ACIDITY. IT FINISHES WITH A TWIST OF BITTER CHERRY ON THE FINISH THAT COMPLETES WHAT IS A DEEPLY IMPRESSIVE CALON-SÉGUR; IT MIGHT JUST OUTCLASS THE 2005. TASTED MARCH 2015. DRINK: 2018-2050 94 WA 3 BTS. PER LOT $400 - $500




Price Realised: $840
