(05-2003) Light and evolved color. Simple nose. Fruity. Ripe. Alcoholic. Simple and fluid in the middle of the mouth, the mouth ends more tannic, serene but still simple.

(08-1993) Although this wine is showing better than I originally thought, it is still a loosely knit, spicy, stalky, herbaceous-scented wine with fine body and depth, but its harsh tannins and low acidity make for an awkward and rustic impression. The color is already revealing amber and the wine appears to be fully mature. Calon-Segur can last for a remarkably long time, but my instincts suggest this is not a vintage to cellar for an extended period.

Château Calon Segur

Château Calon-Ségur is a 94 hectare wine estate located in Saint-Estèphe on the left bank of the Gironde. Third classified grand cru (official classification of Medoc wines in 1855) of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, this great wine is often recognizable by its label. The Château Calon-Ségur vineyard grows on gravelly and hilly terrain. The vineyard of the estate is made up of 65% cabernet-sauvignon, 20% merlot, 15% cabernet franc with vines of 40 years of average age.

Calon-Ségur wine is generally considered to be one of the most powerful and full-bodied Saint-Estèphe wines in the appellation. The estate also produces a second wine Marquis de Calon Segur and a cru bourgeois, Capbern Gasqueton. The best vintages of Château Calon-Ségur are 1982, 1988, the 1995 vintage as well as the 1996 wines and the 2000 vintage. Finally, the 2003, 2005 vintages, 2009, 2010 and 2014 wines are excellent.
