About Chateau Calon Segur
The northernmost classified growth in the Medoc, Chateau Calon-Segur was the treasure of renowned 18th century winemaker Alexandre de Segur. Although he owned wine powerhouses Lafite and Latour, he famously declared that "his heart was with Calon-Ségur."
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014
Bright, deep ruby. Expressive aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco, licorice and spices are complicated by a note of torrefaction. Tight, juicy and intense, showing a floral blackcurrant flavor but little in the way of flesh today. Finishes pure and long. This minerally, floral wine is in need of at least four or five years of bottle aging, but I like its precision and purity.
