74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot. Same ownership and management as Calon Segur. Lovely supple smooth appeal. Fine tannins and cool Cabernet class. Vincent Millet had a new cuverie at his disposal for this vintage, and was for the first time able to really vinify each parcel separately. Much of the Merlot was left out; in his search for finesse he found many of the Merlots showed an acerbic power he did not like. Not massive but lovely pure length. Rating: 90 L&S (Apr 2012)

This seriously made, richly fruity, clean, earthy wine reveals light tannin as well as a spicy finish. It merits consumption during its first decade of life. 2012 - 2022 Rating: 85-87 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Apr 2012)
A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot, harvested from 5th September and finishing 19th September with the Cabernet, the Capbern Gasqueton has a simple bouquet of raspberry leaf, strawberry and a touch of mulberry fruit. There is a touch of hardness on the entry, although that will soften by the time of bottling. Good acidity, masculine, not quite as precise as the 2010 with a slight abrupt finish. This will be a medium-term drinking Capbern-Gasqueton. Rating: 87-89 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Apr 2012)
Good depth of fruit, expressively classy wine with earthy length. Drink 2015-2024. Rating: 16.5 www.decanter.com (Apr 2012)
The Gasqueton family of Calon Segur also own this excellent estate situated south of the town of St Estephe, between the vineyards of Montrose and Phelan Segur.
