More information about Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur AOP - Château Calon-Ségur

The barrel-aged Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur from the Bordeaux wine-growing region offers a bright purple red in the glass. At the edge, this French red also shows a transition to garnet red. If you give it some air in the wine glass by swirling, you can perceive a perfect balance in this red wine, because it stands out neither watery nor syrupy or liqueur-like on the glass walls. In the glass, this red wine from Château Calon-Ségur shows aromas of blackberries and black currants, complemented by tobacco and leather. On the palate, Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur from Château Calon-Ségur starts pleasantly dry, grippy and aromatic. Balanced and complex, this velvety red wine presents itself on the palate. The finale of this mature red wine from the wine-growing region of Bordeaux, more precisely from Saint-Estèphe, finally convinces with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of the soils dominated by clay and gravel.

Vinification of Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur by Château Calon-Ségur

The starting point for Château Calon-Ségur's premium and wonderfully balanced Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur cuvée is Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes. In Bordeaux, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of clay and gravel. Of course, Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur is also defined by more than just the Saint-Estèphe soil. This French wine can literally be described as an Old World wine that is extraordinarily impressive. When perfect physiological ripeness is assured, the grapes for Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur are harvested exclusively by hand without the use of coarse and less selective full harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are quickly transferred to the press house. Here they are selected and gently broken up. Fermentation follows in small wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the elegant Le Saint-Estèphe de Calon-Ségur is aged for another 17 months in oak barrels.
