  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    The 2022 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur, which contains 15% alcohol, represents 43% of this year's volume. There's copious red fruit on the nose, and redcurrant, wild strawberry and orange pith notes filter through with time. Shows impressive delineation considering the level of alcohol. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and a firm structure. A fine graphite element threads from start to finish with a detailed, very Saint-Estèphe ending. Drink 2026-2040

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    One of several over-performing second wines in this vintage is the 2022 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and seamless Saint-Estèphe redolent of minty berries, licorice and rose petals. Lively and penetrating, it punches above its weight.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    The 2022 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is a serious and potent second wine. Super-ripe red cherry, spice, leather, tobacco and cedar all race across the palate. All the natural richness of the year comes through in this decidedly potent, intense Saint-Estèphe. Today, the elevated alcohol is a bit distracting. Drink 2026-2037.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023, Score: 92-94

    In a vintage where second wines shone, Calon’s sibling didn’t falter. Immediately promising on the nose, lively ripe berries and plum jumping from the glass. With a rounded mouthfeel and rich body, this is laced with juicy plum underpinned by firm tannins.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 93-94

    A racy and refined red with currants and crushed stone character as well as ovaltine. Medium-bodied. Polished and focused.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    The second wine of Calon Ségur, the 2022 Le Marquis De Calon is more Merlot-dominated and checks in as 58% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It has an up-front, lush, medium to full-bodied style as well as textbook notes of darker, currant-like fruits, leafy herbs, and lead pencil savings. It's an outstanding second wine that will shine right out of the gate.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17.5+

    Le Marquis often feels like a diminutive version of the Grand Vin, which of course, it is, but in 2022, it is far more serious and leans closer to its parent than ever before. Firm, controlled, detailed and dark, this is a super-elegant Saint-Estèphe, and in any other vintage, I could be mistaken for thinking that this was the principal wine from a famous estate. While this is highly encouraging, it also serves as a warning sign regarding the drinking window for this superb wine. I would advise that you don’t consider opening a bottle before 2030! And yes, it really is that good.

Château Calon-Ségur

The most northerly classified growth in the Médoc, Château Calon-Ségur has had a gracious history. In the 18th century, it was the most beloved property of its owner, the Marquis Nicolas-Aléxandre Ségur. Though he also owned such celebrated châteaux as Lafite and Latour, he would proudly state: "I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon."

The most northerly classified growth in the Médoc, Château Calon-Ségur has had a gracious history. In the 18th century, it was the most beloved property of its owner, the Marquis Nicolas-Aléxandre Ségur. Though he also owned such celebrated châteaux as Lafite and Latour, he would proudly state: "I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon." He immortalised his affection by creating a heart on the label - a symbol that exists to this day. Calon-Ségur was owned and managed for many years by Mme. Denise Capbern Gasqueton, a magical hostess who captures the essence of La Vieille France with all its tradition, elegance and etiquette. She sadly passed away in 2011 but the inate quality of the vineyards ensures Calon-Ségur's place among the top wines of the appellation.Read less

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
