This wine is of great heritage being made by the same team behind Chateau Calon Segur. At 99/100 Robert Parker rates the 2009 St-Estephe vintage as the best since at least 1970.

Left bank Bordeaux is famous for its gravelly soils which are much loved by Cabernet Sauvignon, the principal grape variety in this wine.  It's beautiful fruit-forward, showing lots of dry, gravel, cassis and plum with Merlot bringing a rich fruity component to the mid pallet.  Beautiful acidity from start to finish.  This would be the perfect classic match to red meats. 

Great value Claret.  With 11 years of cellaring it is all starting to come together - fruit, maturing tannins, oak, and acidity.  Enjoy this Christmas (1-2 hours of decanting recommended) but if you are patient it will continue to mature for at least 3 more years.
