1998 Calon Segur

Average critic rating : 88.83 points



Although austere tannin may keep this wine from obtaining an outstanding score, it exhibits plenty of complexity in its earthy, truffle, black cherry, currant, plum, and herb-scented bouquet as well as flavors. Moderately tannic, with good weight, it is a classically-styled 1998. Despite the fact that Calon-Segur tends to utilize about 35% Merlot in the final blend, it is not one of the more precocious efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030. Wine Advocate.April, 2001



A pretty and delicious red, with plum, berry and currant character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate finish. Best after 2005. - James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2001



Mid-crimson with smudgy rim. bluer than the 1999 in fact. Quite low key nose, broad and well melded. Classic St Estèphe. Very dry but more substance and fruit in the middle than the 1999. Quite inky.www.jancisrobinson.com, 09 Dec 2001
