The estate's Second Wine offers a different interpretation of the Calon terroir. With an average of 75% Merlot in the blends, Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is totally distinct from the First Wine. "It benefits from a true expression of its own", underlines Vincent Millet. "The plots are separated out from the beginning." Le Marquis de Calon Ségur provides immediate enjoyment, warmth and a velvety texture. It is carefully aged generally for 17 months in oak barrels, a third of which are new. Deliciously easy-drinking, silky and expressive, its charm comes to the fore, while at the same time bringing to our minds the elegance of the Grand Vin.

This finely perfumed wine has a percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blend giving elegance as well as contrasting well with the ripe, jammy Merlot. This generously structured wine is smooth, juicy with red fruits and acidity. It will age well over the medium term. Drink from 2024.

Bright and fresh, with floral, bitter cherry and damson plum notes streaming through, carried by a slightly brisk-edged iron accent. Shows a savory echo through the finish. Drink now through 2026. 11,667 cases made.

The 2015 Le Marquis de Calon-Segur is blended of 57% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old French oak barrels for 17 months. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a balsamic nose with dark cherries and notes of truffles and chargrill. The medium-bodied mouth is fine, fresh and lithe with chewy tannins and an earthy finish.
