2017 Capbern, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

SKU #1443120 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 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)  (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

 A rich, fruity wine with lots of fine tannins and mineral undertones with some flowers. Medium body, pure fruit and a full finish. Drink now or hold. A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot.  (1/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 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.  (2/2020)

91 points Vinous

 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)  (2/2020)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh and juicy, with pomegranate and damson plum fruit laced liberally with lilac, savory and pebble hints. (JM, Web Only-2018)

Decanter

 The Merlots and Cabernet Francs suffered a little from the rains of September, but the early season and lack of frost damage helped overcome this, with a normal yield of 43.5hl/ha. Capbern has an ample mid-palate with savoury but fleshy blueberry and blackberry fruits, and mint-edged charcoal - it's well put together. 3% Petit Verdot makes up the blend given here. Ageing for 18 months in 60% new oak. 3.8 pH. (JA)  (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Deep crimson with purple rim. Fresh and delicious bramble and cassis fruit. Firm, finely grained, super-fresh. Slightly chewy but with plenty of dark fruit in the middle. Full but balanced. (JH)  (4/2018)
