The château was rated as a third growth in the 1855 Classification of the Médoc and Graves and is unique in the Médoc as the vineyards are in one single plot surrounded by tall stone walls. The eponymous, flagship wine (often dubbed the \"grand vin\") is a Bordeaux red blend although it is predominantly made from Cabernet Sauvignon. In some years the Cabernet Sauvignon proportion can be as high as 90 percent. Winegrowing here dates back to the 12th Century, but the name, Calon-Ségur, was first seen in the 18th Century. At the time, the château was owned by Nicolas-Alexandre, the Marquis de Ségur, who also owned Châteaux Latour, Lafite and Margaux. The Marquis decided to add his name to the château alongside the word Calon, the name of the small boats that once transferred timber down the Gironde. As well as changing the name of the estate he also placed a heart on the label of his wine, after he famously stated: \"I make wine at Lafite and Latour but my heart belongs to Calon.\" Calon-Ségur's vineyards are planted on clay and gravel soil, giving the finished wines power and finesse. While Cabernet Sauvignon is dominant in the wines, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are planted as well, providing blending opportunities. The grand vin is aged in new oak, fined with egg whites and produced in relatively small quantities – 80,000 bottles – every year. The second wine, Marquis de Calon, is predominantly Merlot and aged in barrels, only a third of which are new. The production is much higher than the grand vin and it is produced from younger vines and released younger.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T15:03:10-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-24T20:37:16-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Calon-Ségur","Region_Bordeaux","RK2403","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":129899,"price_min":129899,"price_max":129899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42869368520842,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1973 | Château Calon-Ségu | Saint-Estephe","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":129899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/67_4303ba85-17e3-4c77-b999-3d00bee9bab3.jpg?v=1679704688"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/67_4303ba85-17e3-4c77-b999-3d00bee9bab3.jpg?v=1679704688","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1973 | Château Calon-Ségu | Saint-Estephe at CaskCartel.com","id":24472477892746,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.298,"height":325,"width":97,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/67_4303ba85-17e3-4c77-b999-3d00bee9bab3.jpg?v=1679704688"},"aspect_ratio":0.298,"height":325,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/67_4303ba85-17e3-4c77-b999-3d00bee9bab3.jpg?v=1679704688","width":97}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1973 | Château Calon-Ségu | Saint-Estephe\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 1973 vintage is still just on the right side of drinking nicely, revealing a core of dark plums and cherries, with notes of tobacco, earth and meat.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château Calon-Ségur\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e1973\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 12.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Bordeaux Blend Red\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Bordeaux\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 1973 vintage is still just on the right side of drinking nicely, revealing a core of dark plums and cherries, with notes of tobacco, earth and meat.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eProducer Information\u003c\/h4\u003e\nChâteau Calon-Ségur is a well-regarded wine estate located in the commune of Saint-Estèphe, on the left bank of the Gironde estuary in northern Bordeaux.
