Chateau Calon-Segur 2011 vintage is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.
 
Critical Acclaim:
James Suckling, 92 Points
A red with wonderful aromas of blackberries, spices and plums that follow through to a full body, with lovely integrated tannins and a polished, fine finish. Better in 2017.
 
Wine Spectator, 91 Points
Rather lush, with fig, boysenberry and black currant pâte de fruit notes at the fore, backed by singed spice, apple wood and charcoal details that lend balance. More flattering than austere in terms of style, with the fruit lingering in the end. Much more fresh and pure than the slightly funky and disappointing '10. Best from 2015 through 2024. 8,330 cases made.
 
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 Points
Its bigger sister, the well-made 2011 Calon Segur boasts a dense ruby/purple color, sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of earth, oak and spice, medium body, moderate tannin, a pure mouthfeel and a long finish. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.
