1949 Calon Segur

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



I have experienced bottle variation with the 1949 Calon-Segur, ranging from bottles that were slightly austere and under-nourished, to those that were superb. This bottle was an outstanding example. It did not possess the weight, unctuosity, and thickness of the 1947, nor the power, youthfulness, and muscle of the 1945. It revealed considerable amber at the edge of its dark garnet color. The nose displayed a Medoc-like, cedar, spice, curranty, mineral, and damp forest scent. Medium to full-bodied, with high tannin, excellent concentration, and an element of over-ripe fruit, this was an impressive, fully mature Calon-Segur that can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-20 years.
