Chateau Capbern

Chateau Capbern was bought by Georges Gasqueton in 1894 when he added his name to the estate. The Gasqueton family continued to manage it until the death of Denise Capbern-Gasqueton, and in 2012 it was sold to the French insurance company Suravenir Assurances. They also acquired Château Calon-Ségur [also owned by the Gasqueton family] at the same time, and this is now Capbern's sister property. From the 2013 vintage the Gasqueton name was dropped from the label, and now the wines are sold under the name of Château Capbern. This Cru Bourgeois estate is exceptionally well located in St-Estèphe, between Château Phelan Ségur and Château Meyney. 41 hectares are under vine on two different sites planted with 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot on a mix of gravel, clay and chalky soils. The average age of the vines is around 20 years. The wines are aged for 18 months in oak, 60% new. The Capbern style is well-structured and beautifully balanced with appealing ripe cassis fruit – these wines punch well above their classification and therefore represent terrific value for money.
