St Estèphe 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.

Large formats of both wines are available to purchase, please email wine@goedhuis.com or call us on 020 7793 7900.

      Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 90-92

      Ch Capbern is run by the team at St Estèphe cru classé, Ch Calon-Ségur, and offers excellent value for the calibre of winemaking. 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. It has a leafy freshness to the fruity nose and a smooth, iodine character on the palate. Managing Director Laurent Duffau explained they offset the slight lack of structure in the Merlot this year with the high quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This showed a dextrous application of Bordeaux’s tradition of blending.

        Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 90-92

        This is an excellent example of good value St Estèphe, in the infinitely capable hands of Jean-Charles Cazes of Lynch Bages. A firmly structured wine, full of wild hedgerow fruit flavours. Beautifully balanced with a subtle stony finish, this well-made wine bursts with energy and intensity.
