Graphite, wild herbs, bracken, violets and such spicy black and blue berries. The palate has impressive concentration, yet very supple, charming texture. Such impressively articulated tannin detail with very fine, long tannins and deeply integrated oak. This wine is so full of flavor and interest from start to finish. A blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 13% merlot, 9% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Needs three to four year to come around. Try in 2023 and onwards.

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.
