From the same team as renowned Calon Ségur, this is a glorious, fruit-laden Saint Estèphe. Typically for the appellation, it has firm tannins, so will age magnificently. Highly recommended by James Suckling and from a 5-Star vintage, it’s a top buy.
"Impressively concentrated beauty boasts outstanding notes of ripe black cherry and currant fruits"
Jeb Dunnuck 90 Points
Formerly known as Capbern Gasqueton, this Cru Bourgeois Saint Estèphe estate has been in the same family for 10 generations. The same family that owns 3ème Cru Classé Calon Ségur. It 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, one third new, all adds up to the exceptional quality. This vintage has gathered many top scores from critics worldwide and rightly so. Two thirds Cabernet with the same in new oak, it’s “a little gem that will be loved by old-school Bordeaux lovers” (Jeb Dunnuck). Still youthful and impressively concentrated, it’ll benefit from decanting or cellar a few years.
