Wine Notes

Chateau Capbern excelled in the 2015 vintage. Owned by the revered Calon Segur the wine making at Capbern is just as well thought through and the 2015 vintage has really highlighted its strengths. We’re not ones for selling wines on the basis of point scoring but, to put this wine into context, it received the same score from Mrs Robinson as Leoville Las Cases and Chateau Montrose from the same year. This is probably a little generous but this is still a very good wine. It’s a classic tasting St Estéphe and packs quite a punch. Lots of dark fruit and a touch of spice with just the right amount of oak. For the price it is exceptionally good value. Although drinking nicely now it will continue to improve over the next 5 – 10 years.

Remarkable value for claret of this quality. Balance between tannins, fruit and acidity indicative of a much higher ranked chateau. We suspect that it will last for many years.

Producer Notes

Part of the same stable as Calon Segur and with investment from the Petrus owners, this tiny Saint-Estephe chateau is already making excellent wines but prices have not yet caught up with quality improvements
Note that the wine has been called Chateau Capbern Gasqueton for generations but since the 2014 vintage the name has been shortened to Chateau Capbern.
The blend is around 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot.
Buy now before everyone finds out! So far, everything has improved since 2014 but the 2015 vintage is particularly notable.
