Wine tasting note: 1996 Calon-Segur Bordeaux

1996 Calon-Segur Bordeaux

21st Apr 1999 GBP25 Bordeaux Table Red

Deep ruby, fading evenly to pinkish red.
Much more developed on the nose with leathery, meaty aromas and some plum and cassis fruit - needs time.
Medium to full bodied with rich, soured plum and berry fruit, some stalky, vegetal notes and a dash of old oak.
Warm and balanced with much less aggressive tannins.
Drink now and over the next 8 to 9 years.
