Le Marquis de  Calon  Segur  2016  – Saint-Estèphe

The  nose offers  power,  elegance, a fine concentration as  well  as   good structure. It  reveals  notes of  wild  blackberry,  raspberry  and more  slightly  crunchy  black cherry  associated  with  touches of Sichuan  pepper,  fleshy  Boysen  berry  and  hints  of  spices. The  palate is fruity, well-balanced  and  offers  a good  definition, a  beautiful  suavity,  gourmandize, a  small  unctuosity, a fine tension, a  beautiful juiciness,  fullness  as  well  as an  acidulous  frame. On the  palate  this  wine  expresses notes of black cherry,  fleshy blackberry  and more  slightly  wild  raspberry  associated  with  small  touches of tonka  bean, toasted  oak/grilled, caramelization  as  well  as  very  discreet  hints  of  vanilla. Tannins are fine and  elegantPower on the finish/persistence.
