Very juicy and meaty with lively blackcurrant fruits and good minerality. The palate is complex and generous with good fruits concentration, velvety tannins and a great length. A classic st Estephe!
French still red wine from Saint Estephe Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Wine growing at Château Calon-Ségur can be traced back to the 12th Century, named Calon at the time. Located in the most northern part of the Medoc this 3ème cru classé was owned by the Gasqueton family until only recently. It was the Marquis de Ségur who commissioned the heart on the label to reflect his affection for Calon, even though he owned Lafite and Latour at the time. The domaine was sold in 2012 to the Suravenir company. Today they are leading an extensive programme of renovation for both vineyards and buildings and they produce wonderful wines that age long and gracefully in a true St Estephe style.

The fifty-five hectares of vineyards are one single block adjacent to the village of Saint-Estèphe and completely surrounded by a stone wall. Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of Calon Ségur, making over three-quarters of the blend, and in great years its proportion can be as high as 90%. After fermentation wines are aged in new oak barrels for 18 to 20 months.
