Tasting Note:

This excellent estate situated between Calon Segur and Montrose benefits from the same wine making team as Calon Segur: Laurent Dufau, Vincent Millet and Eric Boissenot. It has now dropped the Gasqueton from its name and will just be called 'Capbern'. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, this is very dark fruited and elemental with hints of coal dust, cassis and earth. There is plenty of stuffing, good texture and a savoury and dark chocolate finish with just a few hints of red berry fruit coming through. This has developed beautifully in the cellar and exceeds our initial appraisal. Classically styled, yet with a generous seem of sweet fruit at its core, it is already approaching its peek, and should drink well for another 5-10 years
