Dear Wine Lover,
in the last weeks we have seen worldwide increasing demand on Calon Segur wines and that’s why we would like to underlay to your attention Calon Segur from the tremendous 2009 vintage.
Prices for Calon Segur have started climbing after the death of Denise Capbern-Gasqueton and after the takeover of the Chateau early this year by the insurance company Suravenir with an involvement of Jean-Francois Moueix, owner of the most renowned Chateau worldwide, Chateaux Petrus. Useless to say that after this change of the property Calon Segur prices have started increasing and that demand worldwide for this wine has risen. Furthermore if you consider that this is one of the best Calon Segur ever produced and one with the highest ratings given by Robert Parker since the legendary 1982, this could surly be a good opportunity. Regarding the 2009 vintage of Bordeaux Robert Parker states: "it may turn out to be the finest vintage I have tasted in 32 years of covering Bordeaux.".
Our price on Calon Segur 2009 has remained the same since its physical release on the market early April this year and is therefore still very advantageous!
75.0 cl Calon Segur - St. Estephe 2009 CHF 84.00 (CHF 90.70 VAT Included)
Robert Parker 94+: The 2009 has the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (90%) ever included in a Calon-Segur (the rest is Merlot and Petit Verdot). Completely different from its St.-Estephe brethren, it is more backward and structured with a dense purple color, lots of black cherry, black currant, loamy earth, forest floor and spice notes, excruciatingly high levels of tannin, and a wonderful inner core of sweetness and concentration. It could behave like the 1982, which, at age 30, is just becoming mature. The 2009 is an uncompromising, masculine, massive style of wine that needs 15-20 years of cellaring even in this luscious, flashy, flamboyant vintage. It is super-tight and needs lots of coaxing and aeration. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2050+.
