Description

The style of a fine red wine from Saint-Estephe by Calon Segur

The estate
Calon was the name given to a kind of boat used in the Middle Ages to transport lumber from one bank of the Garonne to the other. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Marquis de Segur, who received the estate through marriage, added his name to it. And so, the label of this 3rd Classified Growth of Saint-Estephe was born. Chateau Calon-Segur remained in the Capbern-Gasqueton family throughout the 19th century. In 2012, the property was bought by Suravenir Assurances, who continue to produce wines with an inimitable style and a pure expression of the appellation. Chateau Calon Segur has also become famous for the label adorning the bottles of the property. Since the 18th century, the heart has indeed served as the symbol of the property, paying homage to the following quote from the Marquis de Ségur: "I make wine at Lafite and Latour but my heart is at Calon". For nearly three centuries, fans of Chateau Calon Segur have continued to remain loyal to this iconic property of the appellation.

The vineyard
The 50-hectare vineyard at Chateau Calon Segur is planted in a thick layer of Garonne gravel dating from the fourth century, with a fine level of lacustrine clay at the top.
