|Grapes||Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cab Sauv|
Capbern has come from nowhere to be seriously popular with our customers in the space of four years, thanks to winemaker Vincent Millet, who is reponsible here as well as at Calon Ségur. Amazing colour depth. An honest, complete wine, with red and black fruit making a harmonious nose. Quite soft and silky with precise flavours. Really well done. Appetisingly gourmand. 2016-2022 Rating: 89 L&S (Apr 2014)

The nose has a mix of perfumes and the palate lots of black cherry and sloe. There is mid depth the richer flavours slightly held back by the tannins but it fills out at the back with a nice depth of fruit. 2018-24 Rating: 87-89 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(May 2014)

(91 Cabernet Sauvignon, 6 Merlot, 3 Petit Verdot) 13% alcohol, 36 hl/ha. According to winemaker, Vincent Millet, there was much less rain in Saint-Estèphe than in the rest of the northern Médoc. They started picking on 3 October with Merlot and then the 10th for Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the largest Cabernet percentage ever in this wine. No rot, nice balancing acidity, too. Only a touch of Merlot was used from the oldest blocks. This is a juicy, forward and exciting Capbern Gasqueton. It will drink well for a decade and it looks attractive already.

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.
