Reviews & Ratings

Elegant, yet powerful, this 2017 Calon-Ségur is so very well-balanced. A racy, fascinating acidity leads to a deeply structured red. Settling on the palate this Calon-Ségur is full of fruity, minty notes. Quality tannins. Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Drinking window : 2030-2055.

Graphite, wild herbs, bracken, violets and such spicy black and blue berries. The palate has impressive concentration, yet very supple, charming texture. Such impressively articulated tannin detail with very fine, long tannins and deeply integrated oak. This wine is so full of flavor and interest from start to finish. A blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 13% merlot, 9% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Needs three to four year to come around. Try in 2023 and onwards.
James Suckling
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Calon-Ségur features warm plums, cassis, baked cherries and mulberries, earth, meats and cedar on the nose with notes of lavender and olives. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and intense with firm, fine-grained tannins and great length, finishing minerally. This wine was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 20 months. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is very pure and sleek in feel, with an iron note running from start to finish while cassis, cherry and damson plum fruit plays out. The long, focused finish has light bay and savory hints while letting the minerality sing.—J.M.

Château Calon Ségur

Château Calon Ségur

Like many Bordeaux estates, Château Calon Ségur in Saint-Estèphe has shown significant developments in quality during the late 1990s. Their increased attention to detail during the viniculture processes have been successful in their production of more opulent, harmonious wines. Therefore, justifying their rank of Third Classified Growth as per the famous 1855 Classification. Historically in the Calon family since 1147, the property passed into the hands of Nicolas Alexandre de Ségur and generations later, Marquis de Ségur, the previous owner of the famous Bordeaux estates, Château Lafite and Château Latour. The illustrious Marquis, as the tale goes, said “I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon.” Thus explaining the notorious heart shaped label found on each of the château’s bottles. The previous proprietors, the Gasqueton family, sold the property to Suravenir, a large French insurance company in 2012 - ending over a century of ownership. Today, it is no secret that this is one of the leading vineyards in the Bordeaux appellation, if not in the world. The 55-hectare property is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes, and produces their greatest wines, the Grand Vin of Calon Ségur which mirrors the terroir’s essence, as well as their velvety second wine, Le Marquis de Calon Ségur. With the change of ownership, Château Calon Ségur opens a new chapter in its history. The restructuring of the vineyard, and the construction of a new vat-house and ageing cellar will allow Calon Ségur to better express the secrets of its unique terroir. ...
Saint-Estèphe

Saint-Estèphe

The most northerly “cru” of the Médoc, St Estèphe is located due south of the northern tip of the Médoc appellation. Though it is not home to any First Growth (though some of Château Lafite’s vineyards are also found in St. Estèphe’s borders – they have a special dispensation), it has long been famous for its excellent wines. Its two most important Châteaux are Second Growths Montrose and Cos d’Estournel, but other excellent estates also call St. Estèphe home such as Calon-Ségur, Lafon-Rochet and Phélan-Ségur. Its soil is slightly different from other appellations in the Médoc in that it has more clay. While this often allows a higher percentage of Merlot, the soil also produces notably burly wines with firm tannins that are capable of ageing many years. In richer vintages, the addition of Merlot can add a marked difference to its alcohol and texture when compared to neighbouring Pauillac. ...
