Calon Ségur 2007
The 2007 Calon Segur has a lovely ferrous bouquet that is just pure Saint Estèphe, maybe a little rustic in style, yet there is presence, impressive intensity and plenty of charm. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, not a complex Calon Segur, and you cannot escape the fact that it fades sharply towards the finish. That said, there is freshness in situ, and despite it feeling blocky and broad shouldered, it is the kind of off-vintage Claret that bistros and restaurants love. Drink now because I cannot foresee any improvement in bottle. Tasted February 2017.

Layered ruby. Now this tastes like a complete wine at last – with richness and one that covers all the bases. Lots of fun to drink now. Clean and refreshing. Drink 2016-2030.
