Tasting notes
"Bright medium ruby. Deep, superripe aromas of dark berries, black cherry and bitter chocolate; slightly exotic crystallized fruit aspect. Dense, sweet and wonderfully rich; a lovely combination of palate-caressing chocolatey fruit and firm underlying structure. Finishes with excellent grip and great palate-saturating sweetness. Another outstanding 1996 Medoc wine in the making. Drink 2010 through 2030."

Chateau Calon-Segur

Calon-Ségur is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc—dating back to the middle ages. In the 18th century, the estate fell into the hands of the Marquis de Ségur. Despite the fact that he also owned the more prestigious Chateau Lafite and Chateau Latour, the Marquis famously said: "I make wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon.” Today the bottle’s iconic label depicts a large heart around the estate's name.
