Reviewer: Neal Martin

The 2015 Marquis de Calon has a gorgeous bouquet of ample blackberry and raspberry fruit, crushed limestone and hints of blue fruit that emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite edgy tannin. The acidity is very well judged and lends real tension. The finish, while it might not be the most complex, it is surfeited with energy. This is a delicious second wine. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Reviewer: Antonio Galloni

The 2015 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur, the chateaux's Merlot-based second wine, is pretty, gracious and nicely lifted, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Bright, red-toned fruit, floral notes and silky, polished tannins give the wine its finesse and grace. The 2012 spent 19 months in barrel (25% new) and was bottled in September 2017, which is on the later side for second wines. In 2015, the Cabernet Franc lots that usually go into the Grand Vin were used in the Marquis. The blend is 57% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times.
