Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Marquis de Calon-Segur has a lot of chocolaty new oak on the nose that detracts from any terroir expression--it could be from anywhere. The palate is medium-bodied with tough tannin on the entry, moderate weight, but a dry, austere finish. Tasted January 2016.
