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. The fruit from this vineyard formed part of Calon Segur until the 2006 vintage, when the late Denise Gasqueton decided to create a separate label. It has now dropped the Gasqueton from its name and will just be called 'Capbern'. It has its own very smart winery and there is a very handsome Chateau tucked away behind the church in St Estephe. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot cropped at 47 hl/ha, the 2016 Capbern has plenty of perfumed Cabernet character. There's a certain mineral austerity you expect from St Estephe that is both alluring and lends this a gravitas beyond its price point. Sumptuous, creamy cassis, wild plum and flowers - this is a bright fruited, very smart Capbern with a fine tannic profile. This will be excellent value for money.
