Notes

Good deep ruby colour, a wonderfully balanced and complete appearance on the nose, and an extra level of concentration than other chateaux. Ripe sweet red berry character on the nose, very pure; great mid-palate concentration, seamless finish, great elegance, crisp freshness from some of the best at this end of the Medoc. Extremely long finish, in perfect equilibrium, reminiscent of this chateau's outstanding 1995.. A blend of 30% merlot, 64% Cabernet Sauvignon/Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, cropped at 46 hl/ha.

Notes
Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, terroir-driven aromas and flavors of redcurrant, licorice, iron, cinders, woodsmoke, minerals and pepper, plus a whiff of meat. At once dense and suave, with herbal and peppery nuances contributing to the wine's impression of insinuating vinosity and inner-mouth aromatic character. Almost rustic in its soil tones but not in its refined texture. Finishes with building tannins and a juicy freshness. A wine worth following.

Château Calon Ségur

Château Calon Ségur

This is the most northerly of all the wines classified in 1855. The estate is steeped in history, once forming part of the Segur estate which incorporated Phelan Segur as well as Lafite, Latour and Mouton. The Marquis de Segur famously declared that ‘I make my wine at Lafite and Latour but my heart is in Calon’. This presumably explains the proliferation of hearts at the estate and on the label.

More recently, following her husband’s death in 1995, Denise Capbern Gasqueton has managed the estate. Her wines are classical, true to their terroir and have found much admiration from collectors and drinkers. Madame Capbern Gasqueton passed away in 2011 and the estate has been sold to the French Insurance company Suravenir. A new chapter starts...
