Tasting Notes

The 2016 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is just as gorgeous from bottle as it was from barrel. The high percentage of Merlot comes through beautifully in the wine's succulent, racy personality. Raspberry jam, mocha, white flowers, spice and blood orange all race through this succulent second wine from Calon Ségur. Best of all, the 2016 will be ready to drink upon release. Tasted three times.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2019

The 2016 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 30% new oak, bottled in June 2018. It has a delightful bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and tobacco aromas; hints of dark chocolate emerge with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a lively, energetic opening. This is well balanced and nicely poised, displaying a fine bead of acidity, and it feels long in the mouth. A deeply impressive second wine from Calon-Ségur that should give a decade of drinking pleasure.

Blended of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 17 months in 30% new French oak, the 2016 Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur has a deep garnet-purple color and gives up gregarious scents of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries and cassis with hints of violets and cinnamon stick plus an underbrush hint. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a good core of layered black fruits and a perfumed finish.

Plenty of beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and hints of spice and cedar. This is very fine-grained with medium body and a delicious finish. Savory and fine and so delicious. Second wine of Château Calon Ségur. Try from 2022.

This has a solid core of dark plum and blackberry fruit laced with subtle alder and tobacco notes. Delivers a smoldering charcoal hint on the finish, though this red is open, fleshy and accessible in feel. Drink now through 2030. 11,667 cases made.
