Description

The elegance and richness of a Saint-Estéphe Second Wine

The estate

Calon was the name given to the boat used in the Middle Ages to transport wood from one bank of the Garonne to the other. And in the early 18th century, the Marquis de Ségur, who received the estate on the occasion of his marriage, added his name to it, thus founding the label of this Saint-Estèphe 3rd Grand Cru Classé.

Château Calon Ségur remained in the Capbern-Gasqueton family throughout the 19th century, until 2012, when the estate was bought by Suravenir Assurances, which continues to produce wines with the inimitable style that bears the stamp of the appellation.

Château Calon Ségur has also become famous for the label that adorns its bottles. Since the 18th century, the heart has been the symbol of the estate, paying homage to the words of the Marquis de Ségur: "I make wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is at Calon." For almost three centuries, lovers of Château Calon Ségur have remained loyal to this estate, iconic in the appellation.

The vineyard

Château Calon Ségur 2022 comes from a 55-hectare vineyard, 48 hectares of which are in production. Planted on a thick layer of Garonne gravel dating from the Quaternary period, with a fine layer of clay of lacustrine origin at the top, the vines are on average 21 years old and produce a great Saint-Estèphe wine.

The wine

Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is Château Calon Ségur’s Second Wine.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand before the first sorting on the vine. Vibrating de-stemmer and manual sorting table. Vinification in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Vatting period of 18 to 21 days. Microbullage. Co-inoculation with exogenous yeasts and bacteria in stainless steel vats. Aged for 17 months in barrels (of which 30% new).

Blend

Le Marquis de Calon Ségur 2022 is a blend of Merlot (58%), Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%).
