Chateau Calon Montagne Saint Emilion 2009
They say the 2009 is the best wine they’ve ever made at Calon, and there’s no doubt that this is a serious wine for the money. Gorgeous bright red fruit on the nose typical of serious Merlot from limestone soils, a gentle tannic grip with something slightly herbal and yet in no way underripe, and fine length. This checks in at a delightfully refreshing 12.5% alcohol, not only did Calon not follow the trend in pulling up old vines for higher yields, they also kept true to the old school even through the heady days of 2009 when 15% Bordeaux started to become common. This is no fruit or alcohol bomb and is not one for those of you that like your claret at the fullest end of the spectrum, but does not lack ripeness, and could not possibly be in a better place maturity wise. Overperforming and mature right bank Bordeaux from a stupendous vintage at ten years of age does not come around often. Take advantage!
