55% merlot 45% cabernet sauvignon. Lovely deep cassis coming through, lovely gentle expression of merlot over cabernet. The palate is a little less knit than some but very ripe and dusty.

Rating : 90-92/100

Dark berry, tar and stone character. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Balance and intensity. Very pretty density. Pretty fruit. Second wine of Calon.

Rating : 92-93/100

55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Young Cabernet Sauvignon (planted 2007-2010) are in this wine for the first time which Vincent Millet thinks add gravitas. Very sweet and broad – rather like a particularly ripe Bolgheri wine on the nose! Very sweet and luscious. A good restaurant wine. Round tannins and lots of freshness. Very salivatory.

Rating : 17+/20

The 2016 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is a gorgeous, exotically beautiful wine. Succulent dark fruit, lavender, mint, white flowers and blood orange create an incredibly appealing interplay of ripeness and freshness. Stylistically, the 2016 recalls the ripe, opulent style of the 2014, but with a bit less of that wine's unctuousness. Tasted two times.

Rating : 90-93/100

The 2016 Marquis de Calon-Segur is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, picked at 42 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 30% new oak. It has an opulent bouquet with blackberry and a smudge of boysenberry jam, perhaps not with the delineation of let's say, the La Dame de Montrose, yet undeniably pure. The palate is medium-bodied with a surprisingly firm structure given the dominance of the Merlot, with grainy tannin and superb freshness. I have a sneaky feeling that this Deuxième Vin might last a lot longer than people will allow it.

Rating : 89-91/100
