PRODUCT REVIEWS

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc

We were very pleased to secure a parcel today of this much-in-demand St-Estèphe. Made by the same team as the fabulous Calon-Segur, Capbern offers exceptional value for money. Very harmonious, with plump blackberry and cherry fruit, good structure and expression. A fine claret indeed - and as one journalist puts it "Don't miss it"! Ben Godfrey - Buyer, Mr.Wheeler

It has a clean and precise bouquet with blackberry, mint and just a hint of boot polish. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin; this is a typical Saint-Estèphe in terms of a bold, almost Montrose-like tannic structure, gently grippy with more than enough freshness on the pert finish. There is a lovely touch of cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. Give this three or four years in bottle as this is a fine Château Capbern. Scores: 90/92 - Neal Martin

Love the stone, tar and black currant in this. Full and tight with firm and silky tannins and a long, long finish. Spicy, too. Can't wait to see how this evolves. Serious. Scores: 92/93 - James Suckling

69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% very old Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. 60% new oak. Very deep crimson. Round and flattering texture with lots of zappy tannin. A little more angular than the famous 2009 but very easy to drink. Tannins quite marked at the moment. Very round tannins but they are there in such profusion that you will have to wait... Drink 2024-32. Scores: 17 - Jancis Robinson
