2010 Capbern Gasqueton, St-Estèphe

SKU #1143854 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Mature with enveloping dark fruits and lots of menthol, eucalypt and spice. Ultra-ripe fruit dominates the palate, but there is plenty of acidity and tannic grip to provide balancing structure. (OC, CG, AH) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Capbern Gasqueton is a wine that I never tasted en primeur. It has a very intense bouquet with blackberry, tobacco, dried blood and loamy aromas that vie for attention, all served up with impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, a lovely rondeur here that counterbalances the structure of the vintage. Gentle grip, good body and backbone with plenty of stuffing on the finish, this is an excellent long-term and delicious Saint-Estèphe. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Heavily dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a big, bold, black wine, full of immense, smoky tannins. It has a rich structure, followed by deliciously juicy acidity. The dry tannins of Saint-Estèphe are well cushioned by the rich fruit. Inner quote mark (3/2013)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows lovely depth of fruit and fine tannins. Lots of subtle fruit with spices, cedar, and berry. Hints of chocolate. The texture is gorgeous. Same producers as Calon Segur. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby. Perfumed, floral aromas of black cherry, violet and lavender. Enters bright and fruity, with savory black cherry and blackcurrant flavors, then turns increasingly tight and austere on the back, finishing with slightly astringent tannins and persistent, pure black fruit flavors. Though this is a little tannic at present, there's enough fruit here to allow for optimism: after an excellent 2009, this is yet another very good Capbern-Gasqueton. That it's taken very seriously by the staff at Calon-Segur, which owns this property, can be inferred from the 80% new oak used to age this wine. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

Now known as Château Capbern, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage,is stunning St-Estèphe, with its classic tobacco, incense, deep dark fruit, elegant round tannins, just a seamless beauty. Excellent choice for the cellars and to buy by the case, as will only get better.
