Calon Segur 2017

Calon Segur

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

“My heart belongs to Calon”, said Château Calon Ségur’s eighteenth century owner, the Marquis de Ségur. Beating through the very fabric of this Saint-Estèphe estate, the heart is not only present on the label, but beats beneath the base of every sip. Planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.57%), Merlot (c.34%), Cabernet Franc (c.7%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%), the 74-hectar vineyard is supported by five-metre gravel, sand and clay beds that offer the perfect environment for the fruit to thrive. Fermented in enamel-lined steel vats for three weeks before maturing in 40% new oak barrels, Calon Ségur produces concentrated, weighty wines where the tannins of both the oak and grapes intermingle to form an intense flavour that is echoed through seemingly endless depth and length. This is a spectacular wine that has the fortunate ability to age many years after bottle.



Yohan Castaing

The nose remains rather closed at this stage, but coaxing reveals notes of fresh fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant, and a hint of graphite. The structure is not nearly as deep and finely etched as for the 2016, but there is appealing delicacy as well as freshness to this lovely wine, one that should blossom over the next ten years.

Tom Parker MW

Tasted blind. Deep ruby colour. Sweet spice from oak on the nose adding some generosity to red-cherry fruit. There is an exotic edge that is a little discordant to the aromas for now. Succulent and plush on the palate, this is modern and hedonistic, trying to flesh out the stricter style of the vintage. It is somewhat successful, but the pithy tannins and high acidity just detract from the finish. Perhaps this will settle together in time. (TP)
