A seductive smooth and fine Saint-Estephe red wine

The estate

Chateau Capbern is a Saint-Estephe vineyard located in the north-east of the appellation. Chateau Capbern is owned by Chateau Calon Ségur.

The vineyard

Chateau Capbern dedicates 29 hectares of vines to production, out of 33 hectares, which rest on sandy-gravelly, clay-gravelly and limestone soils. The vines are 18 years old on average and are pruned using a double guyot method.

The vintage

Although the mild temperatures and rainfall during the vegetative phase were beneficial for a rapid and even flowering period, these conditions also led to early water stress. At the beginning of August, rainfall salvaged the vineyard, enabling the veraison to start. September was marked by cool, humid weather conditions.

The vinification and aging

The hand-picked grapes are rigorously sorted both on the vine and in the cellar before being vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Vatting for 20 days with two pump-overs per day. Malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 18 months in barrels (60% new oak, 40% first fill).

The blend

Chateau Capbern 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (68%), Merlot (28%) and Petit Verdot (4%).

The tasting

This Saint-Estephe wine seduces the palate with its delicious, its elegant and its beautiful tension. Throughout the tasting experience, a perfect balance blends with a delicate tannic structure and a silky feel.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Capbern spent 18 months aging in barrels, 60% of which were new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a meaty/gamey nose over a core of baked blackberries and cassis with an undercurrent of dried thyme. The medium-bodied mouth is firm, grainy and a little lean.
