Sister-property of renowned third growth Ch Calon-Ségur, 2011 is the last vintage that was made under the watch of the Gasqueton family. Technical director Vincent Millet, whose training included time at Ch Margaux, was fortunate in having a new cuverie at his disposal in 2011. Consequently, for the first time he was able to vinify each parcel of vines separately, with stunning results. Now at perfect maturity, this is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot: colour is deep ruby, the nose being superbly fruity (ripe cassis) with a touch of spicy wood smoke. Palate is full of vitality, with good middle, gentle tannins and fresh, complete aftertaste.
