Capbern 2015 is a pleasant and generous Saint-Estèphe. The wine is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot  and 4% Petit Verdot, harveste between 18 and 25 September. The nose is expressive, offering pretty aromatic black fruits, and a feeling of freshness. On the palate, the wine has a good consistence and it’s organized around grippy fine tannins (though not aggressive). The finish is rich and fruit-driven. The whole offers good balance. An accessible yet quite complex wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Capbern (formerly Capbern Gasqueton) is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, to be matured in 60% new oak over the next 18 months. This is the first time that Petit Verdot has been included in the blend from new plantings, around ten-years-old now. It has a crisp blackberry and bilberry scented bouquet, quite linear, a floral aspect emerging after a couple of minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a structured opening, a decidedly more masculine Capbern Gasqueton in the making, with a slight tinniness towards the finish. Give this 3-4 years in bottle for the jaggedness in those tannins to soften.
