2003 Calon Segur 75CL
Loads of crushed berries, with mineral, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish.
Perhaps because it is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, or perhaps because its most emblematic owner, the Marquis de Segur, built an absolute legend around Calon.
Historians date the origins of Calon back to the Gallo-Roman era. Its name comes from “calones”, which referred to small crafts navigating on the Gironde’s estuary. While wine production can be traced back to the 12th century, it was in the 18th century, with the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Segur, also owner of Latour, Lafite and Mouton, that the finest chapter of the property’s history was written. In the centuries that followed, Calon was to become Calon Segur.
