Tasting Note:

Capbern Gasqueton leapt onto our radar during the 2009 primeur campaign. This well situated estate is owned and managed by the same family who own Calon Segur. The wines are a cool, refined style of St Estephe and are usually priced at little more than £10 per bottle in bond. The 2011 offers plenty of cool refined fruit, good texture, and classic St Estephe minerality. Unlike many St Estephe at this level there is some sweet fruit here; alluring and refreshingly honest Claret. 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot.
