About Chateau Calon Segur
Château Calon Ségur is a Troisièmes Crus Classés (Third Growth) and the northernmost classified growth in the Medoc. 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'. The heart shapes printed on each bottle are a reminder of his proclamation.
Harvested from 123 acres in the St. Estephe AVA, the wines of Château Calon-Segur have a great track record for aging. A high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon helps produce a rich, structured, concentrated wine, with plenty of sweet, dark berry fruit and an often wild, spicy-woodsy tone. Château Calon-Segur makes about 20,000 cases per year of the eponymous Grand Vin as well as a second wine, Marquis de Calon.
