Château Calon-Ségur has one of the most beautiful historical among the Bordeaux Castles. He was indeed the favorite of the Marquis de Ségur who, although owning small other rather pleasant estates like Mouton, Lafite and Latour (just that), preferred Calon. Hence the very famous phrase "I make my wine in Lafite and Latour, but my heart belongs to Calon". So let's go over the historical details of this superb wine and come to the tasting by Mr. Parker (because it is the easiest tasting note to find):

"Supple, elegant and quite light (...), Calon's 1999 start with an evolved color and a sweet aromas of cherry and other berries. The whole, nuanced by dried herbs, evokes on the palate a premier cru from Beaune, with its flavors of cherry and spices. It is made up of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. The blend is rather focused on finesse and elegance than on substance and power. " Source: R. Parker (12/02)

So it's a fine and elegant wine but since Mr Robert only like heavy, woody and sweet wines the note of this 1999 is quite low.
