    This second label from the third growth Calon-Ségur represents another great value for 2005 even at $35. Cassis and spice fill the nose with the palate showing elegant dark fruit, herbs and spices. The palate exhibits polished tannins and good acidity. The best part of this is wine is the long cassis and heady fruit finish. Lots of wine here for a great price.

    Toasty, smoky aromas. Semi new-wave wine but perfectly balanced. 2nd of Calon Segur.

    The 3rd Growth Calon Segur made one of my favorite St-Estephes in '05 and the second wine shows similar quality at a fraction of the price. This is clean and sweet with very bright fruit and mineral all in a long, firm package. Lots of breed shows here and there is a touch earth to complimentr the elegant structure and fine finish. This has just as much finesse as Calon Segur but without all the powerful tannins, and has the ability to elevate a good meal to greatness.
