The 2014 Marquis de Calon has quite an opulent bouquet for a second wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of greenness on the entry, gritty in the mouth with some hardness on the finish. It is a wine that I feel has gone into its shell, but I am sure will return within two or three years to demonstrate the exuberance and hubris out of barrel.

The estate's Second Wine offers a different interpretation of the Calon terroir. With an average of 75% Merlot in the blends, Le Marquis de Calon Segur is totally distinct from the First Wine. “It benefits from a true expression of its own, underlines Vincent Millet. The plots are separated out from the beginning. Le Marquis de Calon Segur provides immediate enjoyment, warmth and a velvety texture. It is carefully aged generally for 17 months in oak barrels, a third of which are new. Deliciously easy-drinking, silky and expressive, its charm comes to the fore, while at the same time bringing to our minds the elegance of the Grand Vin.
