Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Intense aromas of currant bush and berries that turn to roses. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a floral, leafy and fruity aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Needs time. 17,500 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($39-$50) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of cherry, mocha, milk chocolate and iron. Chewy and on the dry side but stuffed with flavors of cherry, plum, iron, tobacco and mocha. This has fat and sweetness for the year, along with a suggestion of herbs. Finishes with dusty tannins and moderate lift.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

This classically-styled claret did not merit an outstanding rating because it lacks sufficient concentration to compete with the estate's top vintages. However, it offers a dark ruby/plum color, nicely evolved notes of roasted herbs, sweet cherries and currants, and loamy earth, medium-weight, light to moderate tannin, and an elegant style. If it puts on weight over the next few years, it may deserve a slightly higher score.

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17.5

["very good" CS 60%, M 30%, CF 10%; average yield 50 hl/ha; picked by 12 Oct; vineyard not touched by any shortage of water according to owner Madame Gasqueton.] Deep purple. Very concentrated and yet fragrant too (this is usually contradictory). Lively, well balanced, very fine tannins, silky textured. Good balance with lots of fruit on the front palate. Quite integrated with minerality like Latour. Mid weight (lighter than Latour). Confident and vivacious without a hint of tartiness.

Starting to come into form. Has good structure, tannins have started to soften and fruits are starting to reveal themselves. Would give it another couple of years but could be a very good wine.

About This Producer


Chateau Calon-Segur is a 3eme Cru Classe estate located in St. Estephe. The property consists of a 74-hectare vineyard that grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The recognizable heart motif on the labels stems from the original owner, Marquis de Segur, who declared, "My heart belongs to Calon," despite owning such estates as Lafite and Latour. Since 1894, the chateau has been owned by the Gasqueton family. Recent successful vintages include 1995, 1996 and 2000. Calon-Segur is typified by its notable strength and concentrated fruit.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
