*****Michael Broadbent

... surprisingly deep for a '53: glorious, fragrant bouquet. Claret at its very best, delectable flavour, weight and balance.

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

... a classic example of the vintage, displaying a huge, fragrant, flowery, berry-scented nose... this fully mature wine is a terrific example of the vintage, and certainly one of the greatest wines of the century.

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.
