Château Calon Ségur is one of the finest and most historic properties in the entire Medoc. Their second wine, ‘Le Marquis de Calon’ is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
All the fruit comes from the estate and so also benefits from the famous deep gravel soils. This is drinking beautifully now.
"A beautifully vibrant violet colour with tight, sappy, dark fruits that grip right through the palate. This is a beautifully mouthwatering second wine from 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 30% new oak for 17 months. The young vines suffered somewhat in 2016 with the drought, and many that were blended into the grand vin in 2015 (70% Merlot) did not make it in 2016." 91 pts, Jane Anson, Decanter
