Château Calon Ségur 2014

SKU :1053/14

Le château Calon-Ségur 2014 est un Saint-Estèphe d'une belle profondeur. Le nez se montre riche, concentré, aromatique sur des arômes d'une grande fraîcheur dominée par les fruits noirs et quelques accents de réglisse. L'entrée en bouche est précise et développe un milieu de bouche d'une belle matière, autour de tanins riches mais aux contours très soyeux. Le vin jouit d'une bonne densité avec une finale juteuse et longue. Sur ce millésime de terroir, le vin semble avoir gagné en précision et en structure tannique plus sophistiquée.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Calon-Ségur 2014 is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot cropped at 41hl/ha and aged in 100% new oak for what is intended to be 20 months. The alcohol comes in at 13.8%, which would have been higher if more Merlot had been retained. The first impression is one of the oak because coming straight after the Montrose '14 (élevage in 60% new oak) the wood element is more pronounced here. It is relatively opulent and high-toned compared to its Saint Estèphe counterparts, developing floral scents with time but never quite extricating itself from the winemaking. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin that lend this more chewiness than either Montrose or Cos d'Estournel. There is a lot of backbone to this wine, well focused with a good line of acidity, but again, I believe a more moderate use of new oak would have allowed the terroir to be expressed in what is a terroir-driven vintage. It is an impressive, you could almost say ambitious Calon Ségur, though I am seeking more personality via the terroir to be articulated. Tasted three times with consistent notes.
