94 points, “The 2000 Calon-Ségur is one of those wines that reminds you how great the millennial vintage could be.” – Wine Advocate

Having now passed its 18th birthday Château Calon-Ségur 2000 has come of age. This Saint-Estèphe – hailing from one of the greatest vintages of modern times – exhibit ripe red berries, Morello cherry, earthy blackberries, smoked meat, menthol, tangy redcurrant, graphite, cigar-packed humidors and warming spices. Described by the critics at Wine Advocate as “a deeply impressive Calon-Ségur” that “it might just outclass the 2005”, and with that wonderful heart-shaped label, it makes a stunning gift or declaration of love. Medium-bodied but with full-on flavour, pair this with your show-stopping signature dish.

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, Latour and Mouton. Neighbouring the likes of Cos d’Estournel and Montrose, Calon-Ségur is a classic Claret from one of Bordeaux’s great terroirs and thoroughly deserves its ‘super-second’ status.
