For The l ove o F b ordeaux M anaged though most of the last century by the Gasqueton family, the property came to be known as a classic representation of St. Estephe terroir. At the front of the charge was Madame Denise Gasqueton, who can be seen as largely responsible for the continued style of Calon-Ségur, which we love to this day. Still under her direction in 1996, Calon-Ségur produced one of their most classic vintages. This is a wine that has been known to be difficult to understand in its youth, as the '96 was many years ago. However, today it is a masterpiece, showing the gripping and earthy character of the vineyard while expressing early notes of maturity. For the lover of mature Bordeaux the '96 Calon-Ségur is a must-have bottle for the cellar. ✦ Calon-Ségur St e stephe 1996 ST 93+ » $145 "Pure, highly perfumed aromas of black cherry, currant, plum, minerals, tobacco, leather and fresh herbs. Very ripe, suave and spicy; at once subtle and gripping. Lovely cabernet character dominating today... Showing extremely well." (111470)
