Reviews & Ratings

Very pretty fruit with dark berries, plums and currants. Hints of sweet tobacco. Medium bodied, firm and silky. Lovely, juicy finish with delicious acidity at the end. The 18 per cent of fabulous cabernet franc in this makes it special. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2023.
James Suckling
The 2016 Capbern is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged for 18 months in 60% new and 40% one-year-old oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with cedar, blackberries and blueberries with wafts of tobacco, bay leaves and scorched earth. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and vibrant in the mouth, it possesses lovely poise and an earthy finish.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
A core of gently mulled plum and blackberry fruit is infused with perfumy bay and tobacco notes, while a light alder hint weaves through the finish. Some sneaky grip too, so while accessible, this has a few years of life ahead. Drink now through 2029. 5,000 cases made. — JM

Saint-Estèphe

Saint-Estèphe

The most northerly “cru” of the Médoc, St Estèphe is located due south of the northern tip of the Médoc appellation. Though it is not home to any First Growth (though some of Château Lafite’s vineyards are also found in St. Estèphe’s borders – they have a special dispensation), it has long been famous for its excellent wines. Its two most important Châteaux are Second Growths Montrose and Cos d’Estournel, but other excellent estates also call St. Estèphe home such as Calon-Ségur, Lafon-Rochet and Phélan-Ségur. Its soil is slightly different from other appellations in the Médoc in that it has more clay. While this often allows a higher percentage of Merlot, the soil also produces notably burly wines with firm tannins that are capable of ageing many years. In richer vintages, the addition of Merlot can add a marked difference to its alcohol and texture when compared to neighbouring Pauillac. ...
