Calon Segur 1994
Chateau Calon Segur
Dark ruby-colored, with a closed, truffle-like aroma, this is a concentrated, stern, tannic wine that appears to have more weight than the 1993, but also more astringent tannin. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2012. Last tasted 1/97 *** Calon-Segur's 1994 is an open, spicy, medium-bodied, appealing wine, but it lacks depth and intensity. Its charming, easy to appreciate, medium-bodied personality already makes for pleasant drinking. Purchasers will want to drink it during its first 10-12 years of life. * All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux.
Chateau Calon Segur
Chateau Calon Segur is a top rated wine production estate located in the Saint Estephe appellation, in Bordeaux, France. According to the official Bordeaux Wine Classification of 1855, Calon Segur holds the status of Third Growth. Among all the wineries in the Medoc region, Chateau Calon Segur is situated at the northernmost border.
Calon Segur was one of the three original vineyards in the Saint Estephe area; later on it was acquired by Nicolas-Alexandre, Marquis de Segur – owner of Chateau Latour and Chateau Lafite. By his own accounts, the Marquis stated that “his heart was with Calon”; as a result the label of this prestigious fine wine displays a heart around the chateau’s name.
Reportedly, the ownership of Calon Segur was sold to a group of French investors, for a fee in the region of €200 million in July 2012. It had previously been managed by the Capbern-Gasqueton family since 1894.
