The community of Saint-Estèphe has its roots in the Gallo-Roman origins of this chateau. Chateau Calon-Ségur was the first wine estate in the commune and is classified as a 3ème Cru Classé. The wine is a Merlot dominant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It is matured in wood for 18 months, with 50 percent new oak. The second wine of Calon Ségur is the 2015 Marquis de Calon. It’s an outstanding wine in its own right and offers classic notes of cassis and currant fruits intermixed with lots of toasted spice, graphite, and background oak. With medium-bodied depth, a nicely concentrated mid-palate, and a silky, elegant texture, it should shine for a decade.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple-black in color, it gives up opulent scents of Indian spices, menthol and plum preserves with a core of crème de cassis, baked cherries and raspberry pie plus a hint of sandalwood. Big, rich, full-bodied and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it has bags of black fruit preserves and exotic spices with a firm, plush frame, finishing long with a minty lift. Definitely one for the hedonists!
