2021, Château Capbern, SAINT-ESTÈPHE
$40.25 inc. GST
Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
This Saint Estèphe property was formerly known as Capbern Gasqueton and has the same owners and wine-making team as Calon Ségur.
The 2021 Capbern has an attractive, fragrant bouquet of vivacious black and blue fruit, a lovely pencil box element emanating from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, respectable weight and acidity and a saline finish.Thoroughly enjoyable. 90-92 Neal Martin.
Gorgeous eucalyptus freshness on the nose alongside fragranced blackcurrant notes. High-toned fruit, nicely balanced between sour and sweet. Lightly framed and juicy with great overall freshness and lift. It's also quite direct, there's no expansion at this point, just straight and taught but well defined and I love the gravel terroir coming through. 91 Georgina Hindle, Decanter Magazine.
