Bordeaux 2010 New Release: Capbern-Gasqueton

Owned by the Gasqueton family, of Calon-Ségur fame, this is a Cru Bourgeois that greatly impressed us in this vintage. Taking its more famous sibling as a model, this has great structure, purity and St-Estéphe minerality, but balanced by a lush fruit character that makes this more immediately approachable than the more reticent Calon-Ségur. 

2010 Château Capbern-Gasqueton, Cru Bourgeois St-Estèphe
£144 per case of 12 bottles in bond
One of last year’s success stories, this wine continues in fine form in this vintage. While initially quite closed on the nose, perfumed fruit comes through with time. Layered on the palate, with fine tannins and a subtle structural minerality, melded with a core of glossy fruit. Drinking: 2015-2025
