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."
91-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
(78% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 2% petit verdot; 70% of total production; 3.6 g/l total acidity; 3.75 pH; 71 IPT; 13% alcohol): Medium red-ruby. Redcurrant, cedar, violet and fresh herbs on the nose, plus a whiff of minty minerals. Supple, sweet and easygoing in the mouth, with pure strawberry and red cherry flavors, high but harmonious acids and a smooth, mouthcoating texture. Only 50% of the estate's total production went into the grand vin.
