An Elegant and Velvety Saint-Estephe
Second wine of the historic and emblematic Chateau Calon Segur, Marquis de Calon Segur offers a unique expression of the great terroir of Saint-Estephe, on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.
Produced according to the principles so close to this prestigious Grand Cru Classe of 1855, Marquis de Calon Segur is a wine made from a rigorous selection of plots, whose vines are aged 22 years on average. From the vineyard to the winery, constant attention was paid by the technical teams, led by Vincent Millet, Technical Director at the property since 2006. The winemaking took place under the watchful eye of experienced oenologist Eric Boissenot. Marquis de Calon Segur was aged for a period of 17 months, 30% in new oak barrels.
A great wine of Saint-Estephe, the Marquis de Calon Segur 2017 comes from a blend of Merlot (57%), Cabernet Sauvignon (38%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). A Saint-Estephe with a bright personality and a velvety roundness, displaying great finesse on the palate.
