2019 Marquis de Calon-Ségur, Saint-Estèphe is released.
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 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.
A solid red with a deep, dense center palate and a balance of berry, spice and chocolate character. It’s full and linear at the finish. Better than the 2018. – 92-93 Points, James Suckling
Deep in color, the wine already expresses blackberry, cassis, spice, cigar wrapper and cedar. Polished, lush and rich, with a beautiful elegance to the fruit, the wine tastes and feels just great, with all its layers of fruit and ripe, slightly dusty tannins. You drink this young, while waiting for the Grand Vin to come around. The wine was made from blending 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, reaching 15.1% alcohol. – 91-93 Points, The Wine Cellar Insider
