Chateau Calon-Segur – St Estephe 2017

RM655.0

As you’d expect, the grand vin ratchets up the intensity. The 2017 Chateau Calon Segur is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 2% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 20 months all in new barrels. This deep, inky hued 2017 boasts medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, leafy herbs, and mineral nuances. It stays tight and compact on the palate, has wonderful Saint-Estephe Cabernet character, ripe tannins, and is just a classic, balanced effort.

Description

Chateau Calon Segur is one of the oldest areas of the Medoc, dating from the gallo-roman era. Its name derived from “Calones”, which designates small vessels of transport sailing on the Gironde estuary. Segur comes from the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Segur, President of the Parliament of Bordeaux in the 18th century and owner of Chateaux Lafite and Latour. “I make wine to Lafite and Latour but my heart belongs to Calon” he liked to say. A link could be establish with the pretty heart drawn on the label.

The vineyard is composed of 55 hectares in one piece, entirely enclosed by a wall gathering the most beautiful parcels of the Castle. The vines take root in a thick layer of gravel deposited by the river several millennia ago. This first layer covers a second layer, predominantly clayey. This perfect combination of clays and gravel explains the power and finesse of Chateau Calon Segur wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of wines, representing more than ¾ of the blend. The great wine of Calon Segur is a reflection of its terroir: rare, authentic and full of finesse.
