RATINGS

96Wine Spectator

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.

95The Wine Advocate

(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.

92Robert M. Parker Jr.

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.

91Stephen Tanzer

...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...

18Jancis Robinson

...Very very thick and concentrated. The tannins are well covered by ripe fruit...

REGION

France, Bordeaux, St.-Estephe

Saint-Estèphe is in the northern Médoc, on the left bank of the Gironde River. Although it has no First Growth estates, its five Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Growth châteaux are notable, and, in recent decades, have become favorites with reviewers and consumers. Some reviewers also note that the appellation is today making excellent Cru Bourgeois wines, which frequently offer good value. There are 3,404 acres of vineyards and a variety of soil types, from gravelly soil to soil with significant sand or clay. The two Second Growth Châteaux in St.-Estephe are Cos d’Estournel and Montrose. The Third Growth Calon-Ségur is widely admired. The principal grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
