Tasting Notes and Scores

96-98

Bordeaux Index

Considered by many to be the finest terroir in St Estephe, Calon has undergone significant investment in recent years. Tight, dense but giving up exotic spice, perfume and a smoky allure. Enticing. Then the palate delivers layer upon layer of rich, ripe fruit. A fabulous juicy mid-palate with crunchy, bright red fruit is underpinned by a stunning exotic finish, perfumed, harmonious, intense... incredible style, purity, character and pzazz. The new king of St Estephe... - April 2017

Neal Martin

The 2016 Calon Ségur was matured entirely in new oak for 20 months and bottled at the end of July 2018. This was one of the most impressive wines from the estate when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, 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. - vinous.com, Jan 2019

94-97

Wine Spectator

This sports a dark fruit core, a mouthwatering iron edge and a long, tobacco-accented finish. The broad and racy feel gives this a distinctive profile. This should put on some weight. - James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, April 2017)

James Suckling

Superb aromas of crushed berries, violets and sandalwood with hints of cedar and roses. Full body, very fine tannins and savory, delicious fruit. Vibrant acidity combines beautifully with the fruit and structure. Harmonious and attractive. Fine-toned. Try after 2024. - Feb 2019

Jancis Robinson

Rich, deep, glowing purplish crimson. Pungent and really interesting and layered on the nose already. Creamy texture and massive energy. Lots of tannin but all beautifully balanced. This is seriously intriguing rather than just ticking boxes. Glows on the end. Old-vine influence – really gives layers and intrigue. Sweetness of tannin. But the freshness really lifts it. Drink 2028-2055. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017

Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Calon Ségur is dense and radiant on the palate, just as it was from barrel. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 is distinguished by its sense of freshness, lift and nuance, much of which comes from the 18% Cabernet Franc in the blend. Sweet floral, spice and minty notes add aromatic intensity to a core of sweet red cherry and plum fruit. There is plenty of underlying structure, but the tannins are sweet, silky and perfectly ripe. In short, the 2016 Calon Ségur is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Technical Director Vincent Millet and his team did a tremendous job with the 2016. Tasted three times. - vinous.com, April 2017
