Calon Ségur is één van de meest verbluffende wijnen van het wijnjaar. Hij heeft kalieber, lengte en kracht. De uitvoering is perfect, rechtlijning en bijzonder getrouw aan het karakter van het legendarische Calon Ségur. De finale is één van de meest imposante van het wijnjaar! Zeer gegeerd, correct geprijsd en helaas ook (opnieuw) beperkt beschikbaar.
De kleur is dieppurper, de neus ademt Cabernet Sauvignon met cassis, ceder en potlood. De precisie, harmonie en perfecte omlijning is werkelijk buiten categorie. Geen vorstschade hier natuurlijk, maar een vroege oogst tussen 15 en 29 september. Het finale assemblage die Vincent Millet vastlegde luidt als volgt: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc en 2% Petit Verdot met een lange élevage van 20 maand in 100% nieuwe eik. Dit is een indrukwekkende Calon Ségur.

IN DE PERS

The 2017 Calon-Ségur was bottled at the beginning of July 2019. This is clearly more intense and complex than the Marquis de Calon with blackberry, bilberry, traces of brine and discrete tobacco aromas. Classic in style with the Cabernet component clearly more expressive than previous vintages (a long-term policy as they reconfigure vineyard planting). The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and superb balance. There is a natural and effortless feel to this nascent Calon-Ségur, very focused with a "cool" and slightly reserved finish. Classy and, dare I say, it represents one of the few 2017s that may challenge its 2018 counterpart. Drink 2022-2045.

The 2017 Calon-Ségur was cropped at 43.5hl/ha and underwent a 20-day cuvaison after which it is matured entirely in new oak for 20 months. It contains 13.2° alcohol. At the moment the aromatics convey the 100% new oak but there is sufficient fruit underneath. There is a palpable sense of “coolness” imbuing the aromatics and like other Saint-Estèphe barrel samples, it conveys a subtle estuary-like tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, beautifully integrated new oak that lends this a silky texture. Perhaps this is the smoothest of all the 2017s I encountered within this appellation, a classy and sophisticated Calon-Ségur in the making and heightened by the thrilling tension towards the finish and the latent energy that lingers in the mouth. Excellent.

The 2017 Calon Ségur is attractive, but it has not come together as well as I had hoped it would. Soft and easygoing, the 2017 is decidedly light and lacking in both depth and complexity. Red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender and spice are some of the notes that develop in a soft, easygoing Calon that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Technical Director Vincent Millet and Estate Manager Laurent Dufau have done tremendous work at Calon over the last few years, but there was only so much they could do in 2017. Tasted two times. Drink 2020-2032.

90-93 Antonio Galloni – vinous.com (Mei 2018)
The 2017 Calon Ségur is a classy, polished wine. Conditions favored Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up 76% of the blend. Open-knit and supple, the 2017 is surprisingly open and harmonious in the early going. Hints of espresso, mocha, red cherry jam, cinnamon and dusk of new French oak add accents, but it is the wine's gentle personality that stands out most. In some vintages, Calon Ségur speaks loudly. In 2017, the Grand Vin is hushed and yet very expressive. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Tasted three times.

This is rich, with fresh blueberry and cassis notes. The fruit is on the elegant side, and this should be earlier to drink than the 2016 and even the 2014. Technical director Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen and the team took an interesting approach to building the mid-palate, increasing the persistency by re-integrating the press wine immediately after vinification, so having both free run and press wine together during maceration. Blending the press wine at such an early stage took a leap of faith, as did using so much of the young, nine-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon in the first blend. But it works - this is precise, balanced and appealing, building slowly over the palate. Yield of 43.5hl/ha, 40% of production into the grand vin. 3.7pH. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040

95 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW – robertparker.com (Maart 2020)
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Calon-Ségur features warm plums, cassis, baked cherries and mulberries, earth, meats and cedar on the nose with notes of lavender and olives. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and intense with firm, fine-grained tannins and great length, finishing minerally. This wine was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 20 months. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Drink 2022-2047.

92-94 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW – robertparker.com (April 2018)
The 2017 Calon-Ségur is tentatively blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with pronounced black currants, crushed blackberries and fresh black plums with hints of cigar box, sandalwood and cinnamon stick plus a waft of mossy bark. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant, energetic and fresh with layers of black fruit, perfumed incense and fragrant earth notions, lingering nicely with exotic spices coming through on the finish.

94-95 James Suckling – jamessuckling.com (Maart 2018)
This is very delicate on the attack but it grows on the palate with firm and silky tannins that turn lightly chewy. Builds consistently. Compacted and tight.

17,5+/20 Julia Harding MW – jancisrobinson.com (April 2018)
Inky core with black-cherry rim. Ripe, dark and with a fine mineral cast to the cassis fruit, which is ripe but not sweet. Paper-fine tannins in many layers. Great ageing potential but also accessible. Deceptively accessible, suggesting lack of ageing ability, but I don't think that is the case. Cool, fresh, serious, fine cassis fruit. The finesse comes from the lack of sweetness but there's no lack of fruit. Dry, firm and very St-Estèphe, with tannin structure. But the structure is filled molecule by molecule with the fruit. It's so finely balanced. There's more firmness than in Cos but there's still excellent harmony. Opens to a hint of violets. Super-moreish and juicy even with the structure of the terroir. Drink 2025-2040.

The 2017 Calon Ségur is a smoking effort and lends credence to the idea that the northern Médoc (Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe) was the place to be in 2017. Deep purple-colored, it’s packed with notions of ripe blackberries, black cherries, crushed rocks, and Asian spice characteristics that all flow to a medium to full-bodied, rich, concentrated, sexy 2017 that has more fruit, depth, and richness than most. The 2017 is a rough blend at the moment of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, which will spend 20 months in new French oak.

Calon Ségur

Calon Ségur is de meest Noordelijk gelegen Grand Cru Classé van de Médoc en één van de mooiste terroirs van Bordeaux. De wijngaard omvat 50 hectare uit één stuk, ten noordwesten van het gehucht Saint Estèphe. Er is een bovenlaag van Graves argilo-sableuses, die werd gedeponeerd door de Gironde, en een kleihoudende onderlaag. 45 hectare zijn beplant met 56% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot, aangevuld met Cabernet Franc en Petit Verdot. De Cabernet Sauvignon gedijt er prima en omvat dan ook doorgaans ¾ van het assemblage. Densiteit van aanplanting is voor hen primordiaal en ze mikken op 8.000 wijnstokken per hectare. De gemiddelde leeftijd van de wijngaard is slechts 22 jaar in 2017.
We kijken uit op de zilte monding van de Gironde… De ommuurde wijngaard is van gallo-romeinse oorsprong en één van de oudste van de Médoc. In de XVIII° siècle, was le Marquis de Ségur, Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur (1697-1755), bijgenaamd "le Prince des Vignes", eigenaar van zowel Calon als Latour et Lafite. Ter herinnering aan zijn spreuk « Je fais du vin à Latour et Lafite mais mon cœur est à Calon » prijkt een hart op het wereldwijd herkend etiket van Calon Ségur. In 1855 werd Calon Ségur geklasseerd als Troisième Grand Cru Classé. In navolging van Hélène de Baritault de Carpia en de familie Capbern Gasqueton die er een eeuw lang de scepter zwaaide, is Suravenir Assurances, een filiaal van de verzekeringsgroep Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, vandaag de meerderheidsaandeelhouder naast de eigenaar van Petrus. Zij lanceerden sinds 2013 een grootschalige renovatie onder leiding van Laurent Dufau terwijl Vincent Millet, een “ancien” van Château Margaux, instaat voor de vinificatie, het vernieuwen van de wijngaard en het uitdrukken van dit historisch terroir. De bouwwerken in de cuvier werden afgewerkt in 2016 en in 2019 werd zelfs de gehele decoratie onder handen genomen. Calon Ségur bereikt vandaag het hoogtepunt van zijn kunnen.
