Wine Advocate 89 points - This classically-styled claret did not merit an outstanding rating because it lacks sufficient concentration to compete with the estate?s top vintages. However, it offers a dark ruby/plum color, nicely evolved notes of roasted herbs, sweet cherries and currants, and loamy earth, medium-weight, light to moderate tannin, and an elegant style. If it puts on weight over the next few years, it may deserve a slightly higher score. Anticipated maturity: now-2018.  (Jun 2007)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Intense aromas of currant bush and berries that turn to roses. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a floral, leafy and fruity aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Needs time. Best after 2011. 17,500 cases made. –JS (Mar 31 2007)

Perhaps because it is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, or perhaps because its most emblematic owner, the Marquis de Segur, built an absolute legend around Calon. Historians date the origins of Calon back to the Gallo-Roman era. Its name is derived from the term “calones”, which were small transport boats that travelled up and down the Gironde estuary. Wine growing at the estate can be traced back to the 12th century, but it was in the 18th century, at the time of Nicolas-Alexandre the Marquis de Segur, who also owned Latour, Lafite and Mouton, that the finest chapter of the property’s history was written. Calon thereafter was to be known as Calon Segur. The estate acquired the rank of Third Classified Growth in the famous 1855 classification. From 1894 to 2012, Calon’s owners, the Gasqueton family, preserved the estate’s identity with sobriety and elegance. Today, Chateau Calon Segur and Chateau Capbern Gasqueton, are owned by the Suravenir company, subsidiary of the banking group Credit Mutuel Arkea headed by Jean-Pierre Denis. The insurance company joined forces with the Videlot group. Together, they are leading an extensive programme of renovation, which will at the same time carefully preserve the estate’s historic values. Chateau Calon Segur’s wonderful heritage is in safe hands.
