On October 18th 2021, we embarked on an enriching journey to Bordeaux, where we had the privilege of visiting the exquisite Château Calon-Ségur, situated in the picturesque Saint-Estèphe region. This renowned winery, steeped in history and tradition, has graced Bordeaux's wine landscape for generations.
Château Calon-Ségur which was established in 1989, has a venerable heritage dating back centuries, contributing to Bordeaux's illustrious winemaking history. This esteemed estate is a testament to the enduring excellence of Bordeaux wines.
During our visit, we had the pleasure of indulging in two remarkable vintages:
Le Marquis 2019: This wine, likely representing the estate's second label, offered a delightful glimpse into the craftsmanship of Château Calon-Ségur. It presented a harmonious and approachable expression of their esteemed terroir.
Calon-Ségur 2016: The 2016 vintage, widely celebrated as a hallmark year for Bordeaux, was masterfully captured by Château Calon-Ségur, showcasing their unwavering commitment to producing wines of exceptional quality and aging potential.
