2005 Chateau Calon-Segur St. Estephe (750ml) [SLC]

SKU: 902745-0719-137
"94 out of 100 - Tasted from an ex-ch?teau bottle at BI Wine & Spirits Calon-Segur dinner in London, the 2005 Calon Segur is on par with the wonderful 2000. The only real difference is that this needs more time in bottle. It has a captivating nose: blackberry and boysenberry fruit coming at you at full pelt; dried blood and bacon fat developing as secondary aromas just behind. There is fine delineation here - an underlying mineralit? sure to surface with time. The palate is very intense and disarmingly youthful, almost ferrous on the entry with layers of ripe black fruit that segue into an earthy finish (with a curious light tang of Marmite on the aftertaste!). It is a fabulous Calon S?gur, though the millennial wine might ultimately possess greater precision. We will see. Tasted March 2015." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
