(08-2000) Super. Dark ruby-red. Intense aromas of violets, licorice, plums and berries. Full-bodied, with a thick, concentrated fruit structure and soft, velvety tannins.

(11-2008) This is certainly looking like a typical 1990 Left Bank. Dark brick core with tawny rim. Just a lovely nose that you could almost describe as half Saint Estephe and half Pomerol – lovely gamey quality, savoury, hot bricks, leather, a touch of ginger. Great definition and developing more mocha scents with time in the glass. The palate is full-bodied, lovely balance with great acidity, a sensuous texture, seeming to have softened since the last time I had this, a couple of years ago. Slightly lower in acidity but maintaining great freshness. Develops a slight menthol character with an hour in the glass. This is a wine you want to relish: unassuming and modest. A point. Drink now-2018. Tasted November 2008.

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.
