Long considered to be the second wine of Château Calon-Ségur, it is in fact produced from its own vineyards in and around its more prestigious neighbour. This is a perfect example of a fully mature claret from what was considered to be a lesser vintage. After decades of highly alcoholic fruit bombs, it is reassuring to find Bordeaux going back to its roots. There is nothing clumsy or chunky about this wine – instead it is light, balanced and utterly refreshing with a spicy element and a touch of smokiness. Worth decanting for an hour or so before drinking.
