K&L Notes

Unlike some Northern Médoc producers, Calon-Ségur said they had some outstanding vats of Cabernet Franc in 2000. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Very dark in color, the Calon-Ségur shows ripe cassis, chocolate and mocha aromas that linger in the mouth. The wine is ripe and forward upfront, with a good balance and middle. Quite flashy in style with some licorice undertones on the palate. The tannins are firm and ripe. This will be a long-keeping wine.

    he pedigree is obvious here. The 2000 Calon-Ségur has it all: lovely weight, richness and texture with ample, ripe, sweet fruit. However, it also demonstrates how the very best wines of this stellar vintage are going to require further patience. The tannins are still quite firm. If I had, say, half a dozen bottles in my cellar (and I do), I would not look to open the next bottle for another three to five years at least.
