"...MY HEART IS IN CALON"
The heart symbol on the bottle of Chateau Calon-Ségur is unmistakable. It conveys the famous 18th century love proclamation of "Prince of Vines" Marquis de Ségur. Even with his vast ownership of Bordeaux estates such as First Growths Chateau Lafite, Chateau Mouton and Chateau Latour, he famously declared his true love was Saint-Estephe's Grand Cru Classé Calon-Ségur. "I make wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is at Calon".
Today, it remains one of the most beloved Bordeaux Classified Growths of all time. Marquis de Ségur's proclamation of love is attested. Indeed, Calon-Ségur is a reflection of its terroir: rare, authentic and full of finesse (tell him or her that terroir also means inner beauty).
Happy Valentine's Day soon.
