2017 Capbern, St-Estèphe

SKU #1433536 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A rich, fruity wine with lots of fine tannins and mineral undertones with some flowers. Medium body, pure fruit and a full finish. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine’s tannins are firm and initially prominent, bringing out the structure of a classic wine from Saint-Estèphe. At the same time, the wine offers fruitiness, freshness that can only come from the vintage. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A classic Saint-Estephe from the sister property of Calon Segur, the 2017 Chateau Capbern (55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) offers lots of blue fruits, green tobacco, and menthol notes as well as a medium-bodied, elegant style on the palate. It’s relatively tight and compact on the palate, so give bottles a good 4-6 years in the cellar. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Capbern is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with aromas of baked blackberries, Morello cherries, cassis, fertile loam, unsmoked cigars and sautéed herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and grainy with a good black fruit core and red fruit sparks on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Capbern was bottled at the end April 2019. The wine has a perfumed bouquet with black fruit and light marine aromas, and a touch of brine in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly dry tannin, very classic in style and quintessentially Saint-Estèphe. Moderate in length, there is a slight rawness on the finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

K&L Notes

55% CS, 39% M, 3%PV and CF. Very spicy aromas and red berry flavors. Actually quite elegant for St Estephe--lively entry. They always make great value wines--at least since 2009. 90 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2017 Capbern is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, red plum, blood orange, mocha and floral notes are nicely pushed forward in this supple, racy Saint-Estèphe. Dried herbs and a range of floral Cabernet Sauvignon inflections add character." (03/2020)

One of our first 2017s! This Calon Segur owned property always offers outrageous quality to price ratio and this is no exception. Beautiful dark fruits, earth and a touch of spice with a round texture and great purity of fruit.
