|Brand||Chateau Calon Segur|
|Oak Treatment||New French Oak|
|Total Varietal Composition %||78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot|
Firm and structured, this beautifully concentrated wine has plenty of the dark tannins that come out of Cabernet Sauvignon in Saint-Estèphe while allowing room for juicy fruit. The wood aging is still showing, giving some spice to the wine. At the end, it’s the density of the wine that’s so impressive. Drink from 2024.
