Château Calon-Segur - Marquis de Calon Saint-Estephe 2015

IN STOCK

The estate’s Second Wine offers a different interpretation of the Calon terroir. With an average of 75% Merlot in the blends, Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is totally distinct from the First Wine. “It benefits from a true expression of its own”, underlines Vincent Millet. “The plots are separated out from the beginning.” Le Marquis de Calon Ségur provides immediate enjoyment, warmth and a velvety texture. It is carefully aged generally for 17 months in oak barrels, a third of which are new. Deliciously easy-drinking, silky and expressive, its charm comes to the fore, while at the same time bringing to our minds the elegance of the Grand Vin.

"The 2015 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur, the chateaux's Merlot-based second wine, is pretty, gracious and nicely lifted, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Bright, red-toned fruit, floral notes and silky, polished tannins give the wine its finesse and grace. The 2012 spent 19 months in barrel (25% new) and was bottled in September 2017, which is on the later side for second wines. In 2015, the Cabernet Franc lots that usually go into the Grand Vin were used in the Marquis. The blend is 57% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times." - Antonio Galloni Vinous
