Neal Martin's top recommendation for Saint Estephe on a shoestring!
In 2010 this property was still owned by the Gasqueton family who were also proprietors of Calon Segur for some ten generations. The estate's vineyards benefit from an excellent location (close to heavyweights Montrose and Phelan Segur), although slightly cooler. In May 2010, a hailstorm dramatically reduced the yield potential by wiping out much of the Cabernet Franc , and the final blend ended up being a 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot matured in 85% new oak.An over performer in 2009, this is repeat business in 2010.
Superb totally opaque inky black colour with deep dark red black tinged hue. Very perfumed nose with scents of ripe blackcurrants intermingling with violets followed by some chocolatey cedar, earth and spice. Seemingly elegant yet rich, framed by a firm but perfectly balanced tannin structure, the palate delivers flavours of blackcurrant, dark mulberry and subtle dark chocolate with some underlying earth, toasty cedar and spice. Long blackcurrant, mulberry, earth & spicy cedar aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years (2020-2022).
...lovely depth of fruit and fine tannins. Lots of subtle fruit with spices, cedar, and berry....The texture is gorgeous. Drink or hold.
Masculine, stately and long, this is a great Saint Estèphe...
