93 points, “The 2016 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is just as gorgeous from bottle as it was from barrel. The high percentage of Merlot comes through beautifully in the wine's succulent, racy personality. Raspberry jam, mocha, white flowers, spice and blood orange all race through this succulent second wine from Calon Ségur. Best of all, the 2016 will be ready to drink upon release.” – Antonio Galoni, Vinous

93 points, “Plenty of beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and hints of spice and cedar. This is very fine-grained with medium body and a delicious finish. Savoury and fine and so delicious.” – James Suckling

Le Marquis de Calon-Ségur is the second wine of Château Calon-Ségur. Hailing from the excellent 2016 vintage and with a higher proportion of juicy Merlot than normal, it’s a dark and highly aromatic red, whose notes of balsamic, black cherry, blackberry, earthy truffles, dried herbs, coffee, orange blossom and barbeque coals are screaming out for anything chargrilled, griddle-panned or roasted. The phenomenal critic scores for this second wine demonstrate just how special it is.

To put the quality of Château Calon-Ségur in perspective, it was once owned by the Marquis de Ségur Nicolas-Alexandre. Sometimes known as the ‘Prince of Vines’, his portfolio of châteaux included Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild. Neighbouring the likes of Cos d’Estournel and Montrose, Calon-Ségur creates classic Claret from one of Bordeaux’s great terroirs and thoroughly deserves its ‘super-second’ status. Furthermore, they enjoy consultation from Eric Boissenot, a man who has touched and moulded the wines of Latour, Lafite, Margaux, Mouton, Palmer, Pichon Longueville, Pichon Baron, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Léoville Barton, Brane Cantenac, Léoville Las Cazes, Gruaud-Larose and many more.
