Château Calvimont, 2011 Cérons
$283.20/ 6-bottle case
The 2011 Château Calvimont Cérons offers wonderful aromas of roasted pineapple, apricot, candied ginger, honey blossoms and subtle musty character. On the palate, it possesses a beautifully rich, viscous texture, with lovely underlying acidity balancing it all out and providing a sense of freshness. It continues to show gorgeous sweet ripe flavours all the way through the absolutely succulent finish. While this is delicious now it should continue to drink beautifully with some cellaring.
