Calon Ségur

About Calon Segur

About the producer

De Ségur is reported to have fallen for Calon's charms and liked to say his heart was in Calon, with this sentiment making it to the estate's symbol which adorns its label to this day. The estate has made many fine wines in celebrated vintages but since its acquisition by French insurance firm Suravenir in 2012, its makers are now consistently harnessing the truly great potential of this site with critics falling hard for recent vintages.
