ABOUT THE WINE
Historic records show that Calon Segur was in existence as far back as 1147 when it was owned by Monseigneur de Calon. Eventually, the Medoc property came to be owned by Nicolas Alexandre de Segur. Which as you can see is where the name, Calon Segur comes from. Legend has it, Marquis de Segur is quoted as saying: I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon. That famous saying lives forever on the label of Chateau Calon Segur, where the drawing of a heart is prominently featured on the logo. July 2012, Chateau Calon Segur was sold. The buyer is the large French Insurance Company, Suravenir Insurance. Jean-Pierre Moueix, the owner of Petrus and the massive negociant company Duclot, took a minority stake in Chateau Calon Segur.

TASTING NOTES
Rich concentrated wine with full fruit and plenty of ripe tannins well integrated with the fruit. Packed with savoury flavours and good length.

FOOD PAIRING
Charcuterie or tapas style food.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The second label of Chateau Calon-Segur, Chateau Marquis de Calon is a relative bargain in the Bordeaux market.
