Château Calon-Ségur

Château Calon-Ségur

Château Calon-Ségur took its name from two former owners, Monseigneur de Calon, a bishop and Nicolas-Alexandre, marquis de Ségur, a winemaker who was reportedly known as the “Prince of Vines” for owning some of the most famous estates in Bordeaux including Château Lafite, Château Latour, Château Mouton. In fact, the iconic heart on the label of Château Calon-Ségur came from de Ségur, who supposedly said: “I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon”.

 

For nearly 110 years since 1894, Château Calon-Ségur was owned by the Gasqueton family until it was acquired by a large French insurance company in 2012. Notably, Jean-Pierre Moueix, the owner of Pétrus and the massive negociant company Duclot, also took a minority stake in Château Calon-Ségur. The new owners quickly set about rejuvenating the estate by upgrading their vat rooms and replanting their vineyards at a higher vine density. As the northernmost Classified Growth in Médoc, Château Calon-Ségur enjoys one of the coolest terroirs and often can be one of the last estates to harvest.

Calon Segur 1966 (1x37.5cl)

Wine Advocate (87)

This wine continues to hold on to life but it is living dangerously. It has a lovely, full-intensity bouquet of cedar wood and ripe fruit. Very satisfying on the palate, with good concentration and length, this is arguably the best Calon-Segur of the sixties. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 1/87.

Calon Segur 2005 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

Tasted from an ex-château bottle at BI Wine & Spirits Calon-Segur dinner in London, the 2005 Calon Segur is on par with the wonderful 2000. The only real difference is that this needs more time in bottle. It has a captivating nose: blackberry and boysenberry fruit coming at you at full pelt; dried blood and bacon fat developing as secondary aromas just behind. There is fine delineation here - an underlying mineralité sure to surface with time. The palate is very intense and disarmingly youthful, almost ferrous on the entry with layers of ripe black fruit that segue into an earthy finish (with a curious light tang of Marmite on the aftertaste!). It is a fabulous Calon Ségur, though the millennial wine might ultimately possess greater precision. We will see. Tasted March 2015.

Calon Segur 2009 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2009 Calon-Ségur is deep garnet in color and opens with a beautiful fragrance of redcurrant preserves, cassis, black cherry compote and red roses plus nuances of cigar box and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant in the mouth, it has a compelling line of very ripe, fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the fragrant layers, finishing long and perfumed.

This perfumed wine is rich in dark tannins and black currant flavors. It has lifted acidity and a wonderful juicy, balanced character. Very pure and well structured, this will be a great wine for aging. Drink after 2025.

Jeb Dunnuck (97-100)

In the running for the wine of the vintage in Saint-Estèphe (if not the whole Medoc), the 2018 Château Calon Ségur is a tentative blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot that will spend 20 months in new French oak. In comparison to the more backward Montrose and more classically styled Cos d’Estournel, this beauty is as sexy and opulent as Saint-Estèphe gets, revealing a saturated purple color, awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed rocks, spicy oak, and cedar pencil, full body, remarkable purity, and sweet, mouth-coating tannins. Checking in at 14.9% natural alcohol, it’s a big wine, no doubt, yet is perfectly ripe (not overripe or underripe), has terrific purity of fruit and a seamless texture, all making for a singular, thrilling 2018.

Calon Segur 2019 (6x75cl)

The Wine Cellar Insider (96-98)

Dark in color, not quite opaque, but close to it. The wine sports Asian spices, cedar, mint, charcoal, blackberry and espresso in the nose. On the palate, the wine is opulent, bordering on decadent, silky, velvety and rich. The fruit glides over your palate displaying its purity with back notes of chocolate, black cherry, tobacco and herbs. This is a very textural wine that is clearly one of the stars of the vintage. The wine was made from blending 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, reaching 14.5% alcohol, which is a good thing so all my American friends can buy this beauty!

Calon Segur 2020 (6x75cl)

Decanter (98)

A return to form in my eyes for Calon Ségur after the atypical 2018, rippling with elegance, balance and savoury blue fruits of Cabernet, with rose and peony flowers. Concentrated, chiselled and juicy, this has clear personality and equals the great, classically balanced vintages of Calon like 2016. A yield of 33hl/ha, 3.85pH, 100% new oak. Vincent Millet is now overall director as well as technical director, since the departure of Laurent Dufau in 2020.

This second wine of Calon Ségur is beautifully proportioned. It is fruity with rich tannins. At the same time, the crisp fruit of the vintage gives a lift to the deep concentration. Let the wine develop over several years. Drink from 2024.

This is a beautiful wine. Stylish and elegant, it has structure while at the same time impressive fruitiness. The velvety tannins go with the crisp black-currant fruits. It will certainly age well and should be drinkable from 2026.

Wine Advocate (88-90)

The tentative blend for the 2017 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur is 57% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with bright, pretty red currants and black cherries with touches of cassis and Provence herbs plus a hint of pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and juicy with plenty of vibrant fruit and soft tannins, finishing savory.

Another second wine from this brilliant vintage that tastes more like a grand vin, the 2018 Le Marquis de Calon Segur offers a full-bodied, ripe, incredibly sexy profile that carries terrific amounts of currants, plums, graphite, and leafy herb-like aromas and flavors. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 30% new French oak, it’s a head turner that’s going to drink spectacularly well right out of the gate.
