Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

"The 2008 Calon-Ségur has a perfumed, floral bouquet that is wonderfully detailed; raspberry and cranberry fruit flanked by rose petal and subtle iris aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a crisp line of acidity. This is brisk and focused with a light black pepper note cropping up on the finish, the aftertaste judiciously sprinkled with pencil shaving and tobacco notes. This is a very fine Calon-Ségur from the Gasqueton era, but it needs more time. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 10-Year On tasting." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 90
"A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, this is an outstanding wine made in a classic style. The tannins are high, but the wine possesses abundant notes of cedar, licorice, underbrush, black currants and cherries. Medium-bodied and dense, but structured and backward (as are most vintages of Calon-Segur), give it 7-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 20-25." -Robert Parker

"Lovely rich flavours are on offer here right through the palate. It's beautifully stitched together, showing wonderful expression of cassis and bilberry with a kick of intensity from the St-Estèphe clay, with a floral overcoat. This is not as intense as in some vintages but is drinking extremely well right now."
