Château Calon Ségur 2022 Released
Château Calon Ségur was released today. It is being offered by the international trade for £1,220 per 12×75, up 24% on the 2021’s opening price (£984 per 12×75). Often a very strong performer on the secondary market and a big following internationally, a wine that we will be taking our full allocation of.
Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 94-96 points, calling it ‘tight at first’ but praising the ‘classically styled’ palate once the wine opens up. He describes it as ‘uncompromising’, warning that ‘patience will be required’ for the wine to reach its full expressive potential.
William Kelley (Wine Advocate) awarded the wine a barrel range of 96-98 points. He noted that it ‘is another superb wine from this historic Saint-Estèphe third growth that began a comprehensive renaissance the better part of a decade ago’.
James Suckling scored it a similar range of 95-96 points. He noted that it was ‘traditional and typical for Calon with the tannin structure. A little closed today. But serious structure’.
