Lot 186

Calon Segur
St Estèphe, 2000
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Historic records show that Calon Segur dates back to 1147. After passing through generations the estate became the property of the famous Marquis de Segur. de Segur was owner of numerous top Bordeaux estates of the day, including Lafite and Latour, but he is quoted as saying: “I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon.” That famous saying lives forever on the label of Chateau Calon Segur, where the drawing of a heart is prominently featured on the logo. A classically-styled Chateau that blossoms with age.    

 Wine Storage

Tasted from an ex-château bottle at BI Wine & Spirits Calon-Segur dinner in London. The 2000 Calon Segur is one of those wines that reminds you how great the millennial vintage could be. Now at fifteen years old, it has a brilliant, vivacious red berry nose infused with ash and cigar box aromas. The detail here is a beguiling and it just "sings" Saint Estèphe. The palate is medium-bodied with dense, firm tannin that provide a rigid backbone, but it is swathed in copious tobacco-drenched black fruit and a superb line of acidity. It finishes with a twist of bitter cherry on the finish that completes what is a deeply impressive Calon-Ségur; it might just outclass the 2005. – Neal Martin 94/100 (2015)
