2018 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1415138 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Easily the greatest example from this château that I've tasted, the 2018 Château Calon Ségur checks in as 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot aged 20 months in new French oak. This dense purple-hued beauty boasts a stunning nose of blackcurrants, crème de cassis, tobacco, baking spices, chocolate, and cedarwood. With full-bodied richness, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, gorgeous tannins, and one seriously long finish, it hits that palate with 15% alcohol, yet you wouldn't know it by tasting it, and the wine is perfectly balanced, has incredible purity of fruit, and stays fresh and lively, with a clean finish. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is incredibly complex with hazelnut, currant, berry and dried-flower character. The impression of a vat of fermenting cabernet. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a long, soft and silky finish. Shows the essence of the fruit here. Fascinating. Layered and complex. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs just a little coaxing before it reveals seductive notes of baked cherries, warm cassis, licorice and smoked meats with nuances of hoisin, camphor, Chinese five spice and dried roses with a waft of cardamom. Full-bodied and completely packed with concentrated black fruit and spice layers, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and a wicked backbone of freshness giving an energetic lift to the very long finish. There's lots of brightness coming from the Cabernet Franc component in here, but it is nonetheless a decadent expression. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a dense, generous wine. Swathes of black fruits are packed with concentrated tannins. Its power is palpable, as is its luxuriously rich future. The wine will take plenty of aging, so don’t drink before 2027. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, fresh and well-defined from start to finish, this lets cassis and dark plum notes race through, carried by a graphite edge and backed with dark tobacco, warm earth and chestnut accents on the finish. Has serious grip and drive. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

Loaded with fleshy red fruits, espresso and blackberries. Pure, fresh and vibrant, this wine coats the palate. The finish long and tannins are firm but ripe and integrated. Quite high alcohol at 14.9% but this wine still shows a ton of finesse and beauty! 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. One of the top wines of the vintage!
