Tasting Comment

Appareance

Tour de Ségur 2006 is deep purple.

Nose

The ripe aromas of strawberry and cassis mirroir the color. The oak is delicately blended-in, despite the wine's power upfront.

Mouth

Opulent, beautifully balanced thanks to the melting tannins, the wine is still young, and the finish strongly evokes stone fruits. Elegant, clean, promises a great future, will be delicious between 2010 and 2015. (January, 2010)
