The Wine

 "A blend 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot raised in 50% new oak and 50% one-year old barrels. The Capbern-Gasqueton 2009 has a very precise bouquet with ample red fruits: wild strawberry and raspberry with subtle earth and liquorice notes underneath and beginning to rise to the surface with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with good fruit concentration, slightly chalky tannins at this stage, good tension and mineralite coming through towards the finish with blacker fruits, one again with a hint of liquorice. Nice length and persistency. Great value + great wine equals happy customer." 91/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parkers Wine Advocate

About the Wine Maker

Chateau Capbern-Gasqueton (now just Capbern) is one of the best kept secrets of Saint-Estephe. It is the sister property of Chateau Calon-Segur and had been owned by the Gasqueton family from 1894 until it was sold in 2012, following the death of Denise Capbern-Gasqueton. A Cru Bourgeois, it is an excellent example of a wine that outperforms its classification.
