They say, “home is where the heart is”.  That’s how the Marquis de Ségur felt about Calon Ségur. He was considered one of the greatest winemakers in all of Europe in the 18th century. At that time, he was making wine at numerous Chateau including the Lafite and Latour.  He lived at Calon, and is now remembered for making the statement:

“I make wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is at Calon”

These words have forever marked the history of the property.  In the following century, the heart was engraved in the stonework of the château.  And, later the heart made its way onto the wine label.

Reviews

This is a brilliant Calon Ségur, absolutely one to search out. Dripping with lush brambled fruit, from ripe damsons to sleek blackberries and touches of hedgerow that add an unforced juiciness through what is a powerful and concentrated wine. The tannins are chewy and very much present, and this has great ageing potential ahead of it. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. ~97D

The 2019 Calon Ségur was cropped at 40hl/ha between 25 September and 9 October, underwent a 20-day cuvaison and matured entirely in new oak from nine cooperages. Like the second wine, it is initially closed on the nose, yet all it needs is five minutes for the aromas to burst from the glass with raspberry, bilberry, crushed violet and freshly rolled tobacco. The palate is the smoothest that I have ever encountered at this stage, silky and refined, framing the pure black fruit infused with minerals. This 2019 is a step up from the previous vintage, a Calon Ségur with newfound elegance and wind in its sails. Bon vin. ~95/97Vinous

A racy, refined red with a solid core of ripe fruit and a long, linear finish. Medium-to full-bodied and subtle, yet structured. Turns salty and spicy with some cloves. Builds on the finish. ~95/96JS
