Château Calon-Ségur is a winery in the Saint-Estephe appellation of the region of France. The
wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus Classés (Third Growths)
in the historic Bordeaux Official Classification of 1855. It is the northernmost classified growth in
the Medoc.
"Calon," meaning a little river skiff used in the Middle Ages to ferry timber across the Gironde

estuary gave the name to this district which was at one point known as Calones or Saint-
Estèphe-de-Calon. In early times, Château Calon-Ségur was one of the original three vineyards

in Saint-Estèphe, and in 1825, Chateau Montrose (in 1855 classified as a Second Growth) was
a forest-land parcel belonging to the Calon-Ségur estate.
By marriage, the estate came to be owned by Nicolas-Alexandre marquis de Segur who also
owned Chateau Latour and Chateau Lafitte. Despite his ownership of these two First Growths,
the Marquis said that "I make wine at Lafitte and Latour but my heart is at Calon Segur." The
wine's label today includes a drawing of a heart around the Chateau's name.
In the modern era the estate has been in ownership by the Capbern Gasqueton family since
1894. After Mme Capbern-Gasqueton's death, it was sold in 2012 to Suravenir Assurances, an
insurance company.
