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 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

The 2015 Le Marquis de Calon was a merlot dominant wine, it reveals blackberry, light charcoal and loam aromas but the aromatics clearly need another couple of years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, supple in the mouth with well-judged acidity. This is more open in the mouth than on the nose, already showing the fineness of the tannins. Hints of smoke and bramble berry, with black currants on the palate and a rich supple mouthfeel.
