An absolutely amazing red, this third-growth Bordeaux is remarkable for its layers of berry, violets and perfume. It's full-bodied and very velvety on the palate, with masses of character and an ultralong finish.
(Neal Martin's Wine Journal) This has a very backward nose with an almost animal-like intensity... cedar, smoke and sous-bois... Superb definition... Very well balanced... developing an enthralling sense of harmony and effortless.
On the palate, there is an element of sur-maturite (1995 was an extremely late harvest at Calon-Segur), fabulous density and purity, and a boatload of tannin.
...Black cherry, leather, olive and a hint of crystallized berries; fresher on the nose than the '97. Sweet, firmly structured and very nicely balanced, with strong but integrated acidity and very good flavor definition...
...Very very thick and concentrated. The tannins are well covered by ripe fruit...
