Capbern-Gasqueton-St-Estephe-2012

Capbern Gasqueton, (St. Estephe) , 2012

Chateau Capbern Gasqueton in Bordeaux has been in the same ownership as Cht. Calon Ségur for generations. It is a Cru Bourgeois, located close to the best part of St Estephe, and has 41 hectares under vine.

“Good deep red. Black cherry, cedar and sweet spices on the nose, plus a hint of chocolate mint. Juicy and rather bracing, with hints of spearmint and black pepper lifting the dark cherry and spice flavors. An almost dainty wine, this fresh and very classic Bordeaux features a blackcurrant note on the moderately long finish.”
- Ian D’Agata, Vinous

“Deep ruby/plum/purple with sweet black cherries, blackcurrants and spice, the wine is medium-bodied, possesses good softness and a gentle lushness to the tannins.”
- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
