The 2016 Calon-Segur is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little closed to begin, slowly revealing warm red and black currants, kirsch and plum preserves with wafts of fragrant earth, violets, chocolate box and wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly expressed and finely crafted, it has a wonderfully fine-grained texture and bold freshness supporting the densely packed black fruits, finishing long and mineral-laced.

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.
