Bordeaux 2018: Capbern, Branaire Ducru, Langoa Barton and Suduiraut
29 April 2019

It seems slightly perverse to lead with the most humble of the wines released today, however, Capbern is developing a real pedigree and offers incredible value for money. The dream team of Laurent Dufau, Vincent Millet and Eric Boissenot from sister Chateau, Calon Segur, has produced a quite brilliant Capbern 2018. This is sleek and elegant with a real core of mineral-infused Cabernet fruit. There’s an unmistakable connection to the modern style of Calon Segur. Genuinely, we believe that you won’t find a finer Cabernet Sauvignon based wine for the money anywhere in Bordeaux, perhaps anywhere in the world. This is a pitch-perfect example, marrying sensual aromatics, beautifully detailed, concentrated fruit and immaculately measured tannins that coat the palate. We were extremely impressed.

From the commune of St Julien, we can offer two solid performances from Langoa Barton and Branaire Ducru. Granted, these Chateaux don’t provide the glitz and glamour of their neighbours, but rarely disappoint when one pulls a cork. They produce dependable, age-worthy wines, which blossom in the cellar. The 2018s are certainly two of the finer examples we can recall tasting from barrel: there’s plenty of concentration, verve and grand-scale tannins. With a little refinement during élevage, these will, no doubt, provide drinkers with huge amounts of pleasure.
