Château Capbern Gasqueton St Estèphe 2012Regular price €35.00
Rich aromas of dark berries and an energetic red fruit freshness that persists into a dry, measured finish. Very attractive drinking now or to keep till 2020, and great value from what was otherwise considered an unsettled vintage in the area.
"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. Not terribly complex, but it’s certainly well-made."
86/100 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2015
"Great purity of Cabernet dominated fruit, firm flavours with fine depth, precision, structure and length, very good indeed, classed growth standard."
Steven Spurrier - Decanter - April 2013
The sibling of Château Calon Ségur to the north, Château Capbern Gasqueton was sold along with it, on the death of Mme Gasqueton in 2012, to banking subsidiary Suravenir. From the 2013 vintage on, the wines of both estates have been given new labels and Château Capbern Gasqueton has become Château Capbern.
