Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe - 2020

  • Provenance: Bordeaux
  • Appellation: Saint-Estèphe

  • On-call time: 15 years
  • Style of wine: Vin de grand terroir
  • 93/100 Note: 93/100
Another strong wine in the Calon-Ségur stable this year, showing depth and clarity of flavour. No getting around the concentration in the tannins, well balanced by brambled berry fruits and the St-Estèphe feeling of confident power. After an extremely dry July, here they saw 45mm of rain in three days in August, followed by another stretch of no rain from 15 August to 21st September. Helps explain the low 33hl/ha yields. 30% new barrels. 3.7pH. - Decanter. Guide Vert RVF : 93/100
