    Default [TN] '66 Calon-Segur

    Tonight was the last night of my mother's stay with us. For a goodbye
    supper I grilled a butterflied leg of lamb, made rice pilaf and opened a
    bottle of:

    1966 Ch. Calon-Segur
    fill: low neck
    color: brick throughout
    nose: cedar, a hint of VA, plummy fruit
    palate: suave mouthfeel, medium body, firm acidity, long finish

    Opened in part to see how my mother, who finds most red wine too tannic
    and full-bodied would react to a fully mature claret. The answer is
    that she loved it. The match with the lamb didn't hurt one bit, either
    as it complemented the wine beautifully. Virtually no sediment in this
    bottle (just a trace in the last glass) but a very nice showing for this
    45-year old wine.
