A Saint-Estèphe red wine with splendid freshness

The estate

Calon was the name given to a kind of boat used in the Middle Ages to transport lumber from one bank of the Garonne to the other. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Marquis de Segur, who received the estate through marriage, added his name to it. And so, the label of this 3rd Classified Growth of Saint-Estèphe was born.

Château Calon-Ségur remained in the Capbern-Gasqueton family throughout the 19th century. In 2012, the property was bought by Suravenir Assurances, who continue to produce wines with an inimitable style and a pure expression of the appellation.

Château Calon Ségur has also become famous for the label adorning the bottles of the property. Since the 18th century, the heart has indeed served as the symbol of the property, paying homage to the following quote from the Marquis de Ségur: "I make wine at Lafite and Latour but my heart is at Calon". For nearly three centuries, fans of Château Calon Ségur have continued to remain loyal to this iconic property of the appellation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 17 months in 30% new French oak, the 2016 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur has a deep garnet-purple color and gives up gregarious scents of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries and cassis with hints of violets and cinnamon stick plus an underbrush hint. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a good core of layered black fruits and a perfumed finish.
