Tasting Notes and Scores

92-93

Bordeaux Index

The 'baby brother' of Calon Segur, this is a great value wine and a perennial BI favourite. Lovely clean, pure plum, damson and black cherry nose with some white stone minerality. Sweet, plump fruit, fantastic sweet tannic frame, great juiciness and freshness. A new level for this wine. - April 2017

Wine Advocate

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.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Nov 2018

Neal Martin

The 2016 Capbern from the Calon-Ségur team, matured in 50-60% new oak, has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, pencil lead and light floral aromas that leap out of the glass. The beautifully balanced palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, leading to a supple, smooth but complex graphite finish. This is a superb Capbern, easily the best ever made.

90-93

Wine Spectator

A vibrant and energetic wine, with savory and bay notes adding to the mix of crushed cherry, plum and blood orange flavors. Reveals an iron-edged spine on the finish. - James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, April 2017)

92-93

James Suckling

Love the stone, tar and black currant in this. Full and tight with firm and silky tannins and a long, long finish. Spicy, too. Can’t wait to see how this evolves. Serious. - March 2017

17/20

Jancis Robinson

Very deep crimson. Round and flattering texture with lots of zappy tannin. A little more angular than the famous 2009 but very easy to drink. Tannins quite marked at the moment. Very round tannins but they are there in such profusion that you will have to wait... Drink 2024-2032. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017

Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Capbern is racy, bold and savory, with tons of energy from the Cabernet that drives the blend. Crushed rose petal, mint, dried herbs, licorice and lavender are some of the many notes that open up in the glass. Medium in body and gracious, this deceptively mid-weight Saint-Estèphe has a lot to offer. Time in barrel seems to have given the 2016 a bit more spine and tannic edge, which adds to an impression of freshness. What a gorgeous wine it is. Tasted three times. - vinous.com, January 2019
