St. Estephe Bordeaux Marquis De Calon 2eme Chateau Calon Segur 1995, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 11

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

The Marquis de Segur famously said “I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon”. Here we have the second wine of his beloved estate, made from younger vines. It has that St Estephe austerity, but the firm tannins of 1995 have withdrawn now, replaced by elegance and the cigar box cedar and dry currant fruit of truly lovely Claret. I would have this with a rack of lamb.
