2015 Château Capbern, Cru Bourgeois St-Estèphe
A wine with a great pedigred, Château Capbern (restyled from Capbern-Gaqueton in 2013), this 2015 from the least-favoured appellation of St Estèphe was a very pleasant surprise. The wine is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, and shows a really nice wash of pure fruit, that feels pretty polished. A very attractive texture on the finish completes a wine that is so often a smart buy, from the makers of Calon-Ségur.
