Historic records show that Calon Ségur was in existence as far back as 1147, when it was owned by Monseigneur de Calon. He was an important Bishop in the community. This makes Chateau Calon Ségur a contender for the oldest property in Saint Estephe. Eventually the Medoc property came to be owned by Nicolas Alexandre de Segur. Which as you can see is where the name Calon Segur comes from. After passing through generations, the estate became the property of the famous Marquis de Ségur. De Ségur is an important figure in Bordeaux history, not only for his ownership of numerous top Bordeaux estates of the day, (he also owned Lafite and Latour) but de Ségur is credited with uttering the words that spawned the idea behind the heart shaped logo of Calon Ségur : “I make my wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is in Calon.” That famous saying lives forever on the label of Chateau Calon Segur, where the drawing of a heart is prominently featured on the logo.

With a splash of oak barrels during fermentation, this Chardonnay as rape, tropical fruit flavors and a perfect velvety texture for good measure.
This decadent and dry bubbly Prosecco is one of the best and long been a staple for us here at Smith & Vine. Soft, refreshing fruits with a clean finish.
"We are what we believe in, our secret comes from nature", more than a motto, it is a concept, it is a philosophy of life."
Razor sharp acidity, seaside salinity, and a minerality that will keep you coming back for another glass. You'll probably want to buy two bottles.
