Château Calon Ségur Wine Dinner

Indulge in a memorable evening with Laurent Dufau, Managing Director of Château Calon Ségur. Whilst enjoying the contemporary European cuisine at Whisk, Laurent will take us on an exciting journey around the region and guide us through some amazing wines.     

Château Calon Ségur, the most northerly of all the Médoc Grand-Crus Classés, is the château with a heart on its label. It was in the 18th century, that owner Nicolas-Alexandre the Marquis de Ségur (who also owned Latour and Lafite and Mouton), declared, "I make wine at Lafite and Latour but my heart is in Calon."

Since 1894 the estate was owned by the Capbern Gasqueton family and after Mme Capbern-Gasqueton's death, it was sold in 2012 to Suravenir Assurances, a French insurance company. Since the new owners took over Calon Ségur, they started a serious program of renovating the property with a focus on the wine making facilities and have carried out extensive work in the vineyard.

Ranked as a 3ème Cru Classé in the 1855 classification, the 55 hectares of vineyard is made up of one single block adjacent to the village of Saint-Estèphe.  Calon-Ségur produces meaty and concentrated wines displaying excellent depth of fruit and superb length.
