St Est├Ęphe hits the sweet spot

New Releases | Ch Capbern & Ch Les Ormes de Pez 2017

As the campaign gains momentum, this morning sees the welcome release of two fantastic St Estèphes that are both triumphs of the vintage in their own right, and offer excellent value. This is something to get excited about.

Ch Capbern is run by neighbouring estate and Goedhuis favourite, Ch Calon-Ségur. It was the first wine we tasted of the UGC week and set the tone for the vibrantly fruited, delicately aromatic, medium bodied wines we would enjoy all week. Neal Martin noted: “It is the precision rather than the power that defines this Capbern and if released at similar prices to previous vintages, could be one of the must-buys of 2017.” At £174/12 IB this has hit the sweet spot.

Ch Les Ormes de Pez is owned by Jean-Charles Cazes and is under the careful stewardship of his team at Ch Lynch Bages. They have made yet another brilliant Ormes de Pez in what is fast becoming a purple patch for them. Neil Martin says, “This will be delicious over the next couple of decades. Don’t ignore this.” It offers superb winemaking and delicious depth of fruit for £225/12 IB.
