Calon Segur 2018

Calon Segur

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 100.0

“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.

James Suckling

Aromas of redcurrants and plums with blueberries and black licorice, following through to a full body that’s so refined and polished, the tannins integrated wonderfully into the fruit. Fresh, linear and persistent. Real clarity and purity to this. Try after 2025.

The 2018 Calon-Ségur is blended of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot (14.9% alcohol). It is anticipated to age for 20 months in barriques, 100% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs just a little coaxing before it reveals seductive notes of baked cherries, warm cassis, licorice and smoked meats with nuances of hoisin, camphor, Chinese five spice and dried roses with a waft of cardamom. Full-bodied and completely packed with concentrated black fruit and spice layers, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and a wicked backbone of freshness giving an energetic lift to the very long finish. Theres lots of brightness coming from the Cabernet Franc component in here, but it is nonetheless a decadent expression.
