ABV 13.5%

Like the 2009 and 2010 which got so much publicity as primeur wines, 2008 Capbern Gasqueton betrays its affiliation with Calon Ségur in its purity and subtle dry Cabernet fruit. This has opened up brilliantly, drinking brilliantly now and for another 3 or 4 years or so. Classic Saint Estèphe, flavours delivered with delicacy and panache. Rating: 92 L&S (Sep 2012)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Just starting to drink now, this elegant, cabernet-dominant blend is packed with cedar, sweet dark fruit and a dry structure. Classical claret. Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Dec 2015)

Smart, stylish, compact with unspent energy. (One of Victoria's 'Lesser-known Bordeaux wines you'd be mad not to try'). Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Oct 2014)

The pedigree of cru classé Château Calon-Ségur shines through this stylish Cabernet-based claret whose cedary oak polish and stylish core of textured dark cassis fruitiness is framed by seductively applied vanilla oak and the typically grippy tannins of Saint-Estèphe which are just now starting to ease towards drinkability. Rating: 90-90 (Oct 2014)

Starting to ease into delicious drinkability, this is a classy cabernet-based claret with cedary-oak polish and a stylish core of textured dark fruits. Anthony Rose, The Independent (Oct 2014)
