Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe, 2010, Bordeaux, France

11 Jan

DSC03173Great-value left-bank Bordeaux from the northernmost Médoc commune and the family who own 3rd-growth Calon-Ségur. “Heavily dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a big, bold, black wine, full of immense, smoky tannins. It has a rich structure, followed by deliciously juicy acidity. The dry tannins of Saint-Estèphe are well cushioned by the rich fruit.” –93 pts, Wine Enthusiast (March 2013). $32
