    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 :
    Blended of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 17 months in 30% new French oak, the 2016 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur has a deep garnet-purple color and gives up gregarious scents of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries and cassis with hints of violets and cinnamon stick plus an underbrush hint. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a good core of layered black fruits and a perfumed finish.
