Formerly known as Capbern Gasqueton, this Cru Bourgeois Saint-Estèphe estate has been in the same family for 10 generations. They also own 3ème Cru Classé Calon Ségur. Capbern lies in one of the finest parts of the appellation, between Phelan Ségur and Meyney, and every aspect is given Grand Cru care. Hand picking of the 41 hectares of vines, with ageing in top-quality oak, all adds up to the exceptional quality. This vintage has gathered many top scores from wine critics with Jeb Dunnuck saying: “this stunning Saint-Estèphe is up there with the finest vintages I’ve tasted from this château”. Just over half the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, all aged for 18 months in 60% new French oak barrels for depth and complexity. One to cellar.
