Château  Calon  Ségur 2016 – Saint-Estèphe, Cru Classé

The  nose  is  elegant,  fruity,  complex,  spicy  and  offers  a  beautiful  finesse of the grain. It  reveals  notes of  blackberry, fleshy  cassis and more  slightly  gray  pepper  associated  with  small  touches of  sweet  spices, red  fruits,  liquorice  stick,  lily/varietals,  toasted  and tonka bean. The  palate  is  fruity,  juicy, well-balanced  and  offers   a  beautiful  definition, a  beautiful  acidulous  frame, a  beautiful  suavity, silkiness, a good  definition  as  well  as a  beautiful  texture/material. On the  palate  this  wine  expresses notes of black cherry, ripe/juicy  redcurrant  and  small  touches of  juicy  cassis  associated  with fin e hints  of  small  red  berries, flowers,  discreet  hints  of  toasted, cocoa, grilled  oak  as  well  as  very  discreet  hints  of  cardamom  and  toasted  hazelnut. Tannins are fine and  elegant. Good  length.
