The Marquis de Calon Segur 2016: a Saint-Estephe with splendid freshness

The Marquis de Calon Segur is the second wine from Chateau Calon Segur. This red wine from the Saint-Estephe appellation comes from a 50-hectare vineyard with 45 of them in production. With an average age of 22 years, the vines are planted on gravel-clay soils. The 2016 harvest took place from September 25 to October 15. The wine is aged in barrels (30% in new barrels) for 17 months. The blend of the Marquis de Calon Segur 2016 consists of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon.

At tasting, the Marquis de Calon Segur 2016 develops a rich bouquet of jammy black fruit (blackberry) fragrances. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with a delicately firm structure that offers fine-grained tannins and a lovely freshness.

The tasting note is intended to describe the general profile of the wine at a given moment. Be aware that the wine can evolve in the bottle over time and express other organoleptic qualities.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Marquis de Calon-Segur is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, picked at 42 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 30% new oak. It has an opulent bouquet with blackberry and a smudge of boysenberry jam, perhaps not with the delineation of let's say, the La Dame de Montrose, yet undeniably pure. The palate is medium-bodied with a surprisingly firm structure given the dominance of the Merlot, with grainy tannin and superb freshness. I have a sneaky feeling that this Deuxième Vin might last a lot longer than people will allow it.
