Chateau Capbern 2019

SKU: 3103000102640138Categories: ,


Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot I love the nose on the 2019 Ch teau Capbern, a medium to full-bodied, spicy, rich, tobacco and cedar pencil-filled beauty with ripe yet building tannins, a great mix of richness and freshness, and a blockbuster of a finish. It’s incredibly impressive, and while it offers pleasure even today, it deserves 5-6 years of bottle age, and I can’t imagine it not evolving for two decades. Best after 2027. Under the control of the same winemaking team as classed growth Ch teau Calon S gur, this wine is perfumed and finely structured. The density of the tannins contrasts with the freshness and crispness of the black currant fruit flavors. Keep for medium-term aging. Barrel Sample: 92-94 This is a gorgeous young sample with wonderful blue fruit and spices, as well as a nice overlay of pretty wood. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins. Hints of minerals. Better than 2018. Barrel Sample: 93-94
