This is made by the same wine-making team as at Ch. Calon-Segur. Since 2010, they have been up-grading the winery at Capbern, and now all grapes fall into the vats gently, by gravity, and there are many more small vinifications, of individual vineyard-plots, than in the past.
This 2016 comes from 69% Cabernet Sauvignon. and 25% Merlot, with 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The wine has a rich, deep purple colour, with very fragrant, fresh and ripe aromas. Palate is bright, full-bodied and rich, with ample fruit intensity, fine acidity and gentle tannins. A beautiful mouthful, for drinking 2019-2025+.
