    An Elegant and Velvety Saint-Estèphe

    Second wine of the historic and emblematic Château Calon Ségur, Marquis de Calon Ségur offers a unique expression of the great terroir of Saint-Estèphe, on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.

    Produced according to the principles so close to this prestigious Grand Cru Classé of 1855, Marquis de Calon Ségur is a wine made from a rigorous selection of plots, whose vines are aged 22 years on average. From the vineyard to the winery, constant attention was paid by the technical teams, led by Vincent Millet, Technical Director at the property since 2006. The winemaking took place under the watchful eye of experienced oenologist Éric Boissenot. Marquis de Calon Ségur was aged for a period of 17 months, 30% in new oak barrels.

    A great wine of Saint-Estèphe, the Marquis de Calon Ségur 2017 comes from a blend of Merlot (57%), Cabernet Sauvignon (38%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). A Saint-Estèphe with a bright personality and a velvety roundness, displaying great finesse on the palate.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose of the 2017 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur is meaty and earthy with baked plums, mulberries, cassis and woodsmoke aromas. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant, fresh and soft with a juicy finish. The wine was aged in French oak, 30% new, for 17 months. The blend is 57% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
