Vintage 2012 / very classic true to type #saintestephe with earthy and mineral tones in smell, as well as red summerfruit and cedar. Gave it an hour in the decanter and afterwards the taste is smooth, juicy and very quaffable. Rich wine with noble characteristics. #bordeaux Paired it with entrecôte and later with gruyère cheese. — 2 years ago
Vintage 2010 / Fine complexity is developing, with a multi-layered smell. Vannilla, brushwood and stable. A taste with chocolate and mocca. And cherries. Years and years ahead but certainly a great joy to drink after aeration. #meyney #saintestephe — 2 years ago
Bordeaux value at its finest for $23. Everything I would want in a well made Bordeaux is in this wine, ready to drink now or age a few years. Very much Saint-Estephe as well as you get more Cabernet notes of cassis and currants, with the classic Bordeaux nose giving shades of present but elegant and well integrated French oak toast and roasted coffee beans. Great acidity and well integrated tannin that are ripe and finely grained. Thank you #jancisrobinson for the introduction to #capberngasqueton during the 2009 futures campaign as I have been an admirer since.

Vintage 2009 - Just opening itself after a difficult puberty phase. Smell with a lot of earthiness, mocca and leather. Still a bit stubborn and that’s what I like about #SaintEstephe. True to type. Partnered it with guinea fowl on stewed mixed vegetables. #bordeaux — 2 years ago
