Named for two of its historical owners, the vineyards for Château Capbern (Capbern Gasqueton prior to 2013) were bought by Georges Gasqueton in 1894. It remained in the hands of the Gasqueton family until 2012, when it and its table mate Calon Ségur were sold to the insurance company Suravenir following the death of Madame Denise Gasqueton. The 38 hectares of vineyard are split into two blocks, one near Calon Ségur and one nearer the estuary.

"Deep garnet. More nuanced colour than many. This really does smell classy. Very juicy but with the stony background of any St-Estèphe. Softer than most vintages but definitely ready to enjoy already. Fresh and vigorous." Jancis Robinson
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
