Château Calon-Ségur Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2000 (1500ml)

$259

...crisp red-berried fruits interlaced with graphite and sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm tannic structure and very good balanced with a fan of truffle and a touch of espresso towards the masculine finish. Nice grip and persistency here. Excellent. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Very refined, has a nice long even finish. Tannins still present but not overpowering, has a undertone of leather, currants and dried herbs. Very pleasant.

A Classic Saint-Estèphe, the Calon-Ségur 2000 offers up sumptuous aromas of steeped blackberries, forest floor, wet wood, game, char, asphalt, saddle leather, violets, and brown sugar. The influence of the estate vineyard's deep gravelly soils is evident in the nose and in a delicate vein of minerality, that sits like filagree atop velvety, caressing tannins. It's developed nicely, with no hard edges and a pleasing and lengthy finish.

Brought the bottle up from out of the cellar and pulled the cork about an hour before the first pour. Bin-stained label. Cork was in perfect condition. After pouring the first glass, it was clear that we were in for a treat as we could smell the bouquet from across the table, drawing me in closer. Notes of cassis, dried apricots(?!), tobacco, damp forest floor, well-oiled ball glove, fresh asphalt and a touch of green bell pepper. So many wonderful layers! The color was deep garnet and hardly showing any signs of age. Some fine sediment was present. On the palate it was cassis, tobacco and a touch of cocoa. Finish lasts for 20-30 seconds. Beautiful body. Tannin is still a factor though it's not a chore to get past. Considering the adequate acid, considerable structure, and the fact that this tasted nowhere near 17 years old, I would have to say that the 2000 vintage will last for decades to come. This was an outstanding bottle. Drink now or Hold.

Green tobacco and gunpowder mixed with cigar box, herbs and cola. Really elegant as compared to its youth. Perfumed and light on the nose with some serious tannin and power of the palate but not viscous and heavy. Less weight than I imagined for sure but I would nevertheless let this sleep for ten years and see it fully blossom with that nice truffle, earth, and cassis component that i know it will deliver. I can only assume it will build in weight over the next 10 plus years and perhaps only in a 'dumb phase' today
