Wow. This is the Calon we have been waiting for! Intensity and power. Chewy and polished tannins. Full body, great depth. It goes on for minutes. Shows a classic, historical character that really excites me. The essence of this estate and St.-Estèphe. Best ever? - James Suckling

The 2016 Calon-Ségur is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little closed to begin, slowly revealing warm red and black currants, kirsch and plum preserves with wafts of fragrant earth, violets, chocolate box and wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly expressed and finely crafted, it has a wonderfully fine-grained texture and bold freshness supporting the densely packed black fruits, finishing long and mineral-laced. - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

This is utterly gorgeous, living up to the promise of its showing at en primeur. Plump and rich yet well balanced, the violet-tinged black fruits are accompanied by really vibrant edging, and a shot of cassis purée and fresh mint leaf that I haven't found in many of these wines. Chocolate and cappuccino notes swirl through the finish. Matured in 100% new oak. 2% Petit Verdot rounds out the blend. Harvested 29 September to 15 October. - Jane Anson, Decanter

The 2016 Calon Ségur looks to be a blockbuster and will certainly surpass the 2014 and 2015. Full-bodied, deep, rich, and powerful, with building structure and classic notes of blackcurrants, graphite, and violets, this awesome barrel sample has remarkable purity of fruit, a polished, seamless texture, and a huge finish. Don’t miss this beauty! - Jeb Dunnuck

This sports a dark fruit core, a mouthwatering iron edge and a long, tobacco-accented finish. The broad and racy feel gives this a distinctive profile. This should put on some weight. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2016 Calon Ségur is dense, powerful and radiant. Even so, it possesses striking aromatic intensity. Much of that no doubt comes from the Cabernet Franc. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice, mint and rose petal build into the silky, textured finish. In 2016, Calon Ségur is all class. There is quite a bit of tannin (more than 2014 and 2015) but the tannins are totally woven into the wine's fabric. The 2016 is not an explosive or obvious Calon, but rather a wine of exquisite beauty and pure class. Don't miss it! As of today, the best Saint-Estèphe wine of the vintage. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Ripe black currants, wet stone, chutney aromas give way to ripe red and black currants Very precisely-balanced with finely-integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 60% Cab Sauv / 20% Merlot / 18% Cab Franc / 2 % Petit Verdot. - GVWM
