2020 Capbern, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1549372 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Readers looking for an off-the-charts value should snatch up the 2020 Château Capbern, which emerges from the same team as Calon Ségur. Offering a vivid bouquet of cassis, leafy tobacco, violets, damp earth, and chocolate, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, perfectly ripe fruit (not overripe, not underripe), ultra-fine, integrated tannins, and the mix of freshness and richness that’s part of all great wines. It’s a hidden gem in Saint-Estèphe. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe and smoky, this is a wine with some serious tannins. The wine's power is mitigated by its acidity and bright freshness. The wine presents stunning Cabernet Sauvignon black fruits that will allow it to age. (RV) Inner quote mark

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really solid and powerful with lots of tannins and blue fruit. Spicy. Full and chewy. A little coarse now, but will improve with barrel aging. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Fragrant with fresh lilac and peonies on the aromatics, fairly high acidities overall with sculpted blackcurrant fruits. A higher level of Cabernet Sauvignon than in recent years after the replanting in the vineyard. 1% Cabernet Franc completes the blend, 3.85pH, 60% new oak. A yield of 33hl/ha. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)
