93 Points!  I loved the 2015 Calon Segur and while it’s true the northern Médoc is less successful in 2015, this beauty is certainly one to seek out. Based on 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot aged all in new barrels, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by gorgeous notes of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, toasted spices, lead pencil shavings, and hints of dried flowers. While it’s not the most concentrated wine of the vintage, it has medium to full-bodied richness, polished tannin, and a gorgeous elegance about it that keeps you coming back to the glass. Drink it over the coming 20-30 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
 
95 Points!  Aromas of blackberries, currants, cedar and tobacco. Full-bodied, layered and dense. Great fruit yet tight and structured. A classically proportioned red with so much intensity. A wine for the future. Try it in 2022. - James Suckling, 2/2/18
92+ Points!  The 2015 Calon-Ségur, which was bottled in July 2017, has a very composed bouquet with blackberry, cedar, pencil shaving and light earthy aromas that are well defined. This opens nicely on the nose, revealing light crushed violet aromas and ratcheting up the fruit with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin, well-judged acidity, surprisingly approachable (and I say that having tasted more of the last 20 vintages at the château). I like the finesse of this Calon-Ségur and contrary to my remarks from barrel, following its barrel maturation it has become more approachable. As such, you could consider broaching this within 5 or 6 years. One to watch—it may merit a higher score in the future. -  Neal Martin, RobertParker.com
