Mid crimson. Lots of age at the rim. Sweet, slightly sweaty but real claret! Great energy and assertiveness. Well done! For classicists. Long. 17/20 points. Drink 2008-2020.
This supple 1999 is an elegant, lighter-styled Calon-Segur, particularly when compared to the 2000. It exhibits an evolved color, sweet cherry and dusty berry fruit, and hints of dried herbs. It is a spicy, cherry-flavored effort with a style reminiscent of a Beaune premier cru. The blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc has resulted in a wine of elegance and finesse rather than one with a lot of stuffing and power. (RP)
