This is a wonderful bottle for the vintage with currant, violet, mushroom and forest fruit character yet always subtle. Full body, tight and silky. A beautiful finish. All in finesse. Sweet fruit on the finish. Mostly cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.

The 2013 Calon Segur is a Saint Estephe that should not be ignored. It has developed an attractive bouquet with blackberry, graphite and a hint of vanilla in the background. No, it is not an intense bouquet, yet winemaker Vincent Millet has conjured aromatics that frankly shade many other Left Bank properties this year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity. There is tangible energy here with a cohesive and silky textured finish. What is lacks in depth it compensates with a sense of panache. It will be earlier drinking than other vintages, but the class comes through. Bravo to Vincent and his team for making the best wine they possibly could in this challenging vintage.

There are places from which emanate a special poetry and magic.
Properties in which nature and the work of man have so shaped the landscape that time there seems to stand still. As if it was inviting the visitor to make the most of the tranquillity and beauty of the place. Calon Segur, whose wine-growing history dates back to the 12th century, is most certainly one of those places.
At Calon Segur, as at all outstanding estates, the notions of domaine and wine are inextricably linked. Both of them, and together, express one and the same terroir; one and the same authenticity. Here too, we were careful to call on exponents of the art of winegrowing that would enhance the development of the vineyard and allow it to express its identity fully.
Ch?teau Calon Segur, the grand vin, is a mirror image of the estate. Rare and moving to taste, it embodies that delicate balance between gentleness and intensity. It concentrates all our attention.
