"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."

"Under the control of the same winemaking team as classed growth Château Calon Ségur, 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."

"I love the nose on the 2019 Château 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."
