Château Calon Ségur (2016)

New

The 2016 Calon Ségur was matured entirely in new oak for 20 months and bottled at the end of July 2018. it has a gorgeous bouquet of beautifully defined blackberry, bilberry, dark chocolate and graphite aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps suppler than Cos d’Estournel and more velvety in terms of texture.  A dash of cracked black pepper and allspice appears toward the finish, which fans out gloriously. A brilliant wine from François Millet and his team. Drink 2023-2055.

    If there was one standout surprise wine of the vintage in 2016, it was without doubt Château Calon-Ségur. 

    It is such an oddity that a classification of a wine region carried out well over 150 years ago somehow generally seems to still ring true today. However, there are of course exceptions. There are times when a Château truly excels itself, producing something miraculous, forcing one to recalibrate not just your notions of this producer but also the potential of the wines of the vintage and the region. This wine is so utterly complete. From striking perfumed aromatics to textural finesse, the way the fruit is so elegant yet complex and all culminating in a thrilling finish.

    For this St-Estèphe Château, 2016 really proved to be a standout pioneering vintage. As Neal Martin points out this is ‘a property that is being reborn’, and being an appellation which ‘shines in 2016’, this marks a real shift for the property.
