Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc (1%)

This Saint Estèphe property was formerly known as Capbern Gasqueton and has the same owners and wine-making team as Calon Ségur. It is situated, in one block, between Phélan Segur and Meyney. 2022 blend is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

The 2022 Capbern has an airy, floral bouquet with blackberries, wild strawberries and a touch of raspberry confit. There's an almost Pinot-like purity. The palate is medium-bodied with a grippy, peppery entry, full-bodied and muscular at the moment. 90-92 Neal Martin, Vinous.

The 2022 Capbern is deep garnet-purple in colour. It sashays out with flamboyant scents of warm cassis, fresh blackberries, and cherry pie, followed by suggestions of cedar chest, and iron ore. The concentrated, full-bodied palate is jam packed with black fruit flavours, supported by finely grained tannins and just enough freshness, finishing decadently rich and with great persistence. 91-93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown.

A firm and tight red with blackberry and currant character. Medium body. Bright and savoury. 92-93 James Suckling.

Drinking Window: 2027 - 2047
