The 2019 has a more classic Calon Ségur style expressing a fresh and precise yet slightly closed bouquet of crunchy black fruit, graphite, and spices. On the palate, the current stylistic aims of the estate are clearly evident in the finely chiseled and smooth tannic structure of this profound, age-worthy wine, which stands out for its impeccable elegance. - Yohain Castaing, Decanter

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Calon Segur gallops out with bold scents of creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, and redcurrant jelly, plus suggestions of violets, menthol, forest floor, and clove oil with perfumed wafts of roses and sandalwood. Full-bodied, the palate is concentrated and impactful with velvety tannins and seamless freshness supporting the multilayered fruit, finishing long and achingly seductive. - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Independent

This is a brilliant Calon Ségur, absolutely one to search out. Dripping with lush brambled fruit, from ripe damsons to sleek blackberries and touches of hedgerow that add an unforced juiciness through what is a powerful and concentrated wine. The tannins are chewy and very much present, and this has great ageing potential ahead of it. 3.8pH. A yield of 40hl/ha. 100% new oak. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend.- Jane Anson, Decanter

As to the Grand Vin, the 2019 Château Calon Ségur checks in as 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, brought up in new barrels. This full-bodied, spicy, complex, decadent beauty has building, polished tannins, terrific overall balance, and incredible aromatics of spiced red and black currants, lead pencil, cedary herbs, smoked tobacco, and flowery incense. Complex, ripe, and even sexy, it will need just 4-6 years to hit the early stages of its drink window and is going to cruise for 30 years if properly stored. It's another brilliant wine from this estate. - Jeb Dunnuck

Sweet cherries and berries with some walnuts and dried flowers, as well as notes of crushed stone, pine, currants and violets. Full-bodied and building gradually on the palate, with intense, polished tannins that are layered throughout the wine, providing well-toned muscle. The finish lasts for minutes. Quintessential Calon. Needs time to soften. Try after 2027. - James Suckling

Cellar Selection. Dark, firm with great intensity and rich fruits, this is a powerful wine. Its richness is opened up by the succulent acidity and fine freshness coming from the fruit. Together, the elements work well, power and fruit in harmony. Drink the wine from 2027. - RV, Wine Enthusiast

Really packed, with dark currant, warmed fig compote and steeped blackberry notes tumbling together, harnessed by a bolt of cast iron. Delivers singed cedar, bay leaf and tobacco accents as well as a late tug of warm earth in the background, ending with a throwback feel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2024 through 2040. - JM, Wine Spectator
