(1/17/2022) "A chewy, structured red with blackberry, chocolate and some walnut and bark. It's full-bodied and solid with lots of fruit and tannins. Second wine of Calon Segur. Needs five or six years to soften. Try after 2026."
(2/2022) "The 2019 Le Marquis de Calon Segur is a terrific second wine. Ample, bold and dramatic, the 2019 packs a huge punch. Black cherry, plum, new leather, graphite and incense build as this flamboyant, opulent Saint-Estephe shows off its considerable allure. The 2019 is a big wine, but the 15.1% alcohol is not especially evident. Drinking Window: 2025 - 2039."
(6/8/2020) "Gorgeously plump blackberry and damson fruit here, high impact with chewy tannins that build through the palate and give an impression of confidence and pleasure. A clear crowd pleaser, with cocoa bean and chocolate shavings, no need to wait too long to approach. 30% new oak. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2040."
