Tasting notes

Chateau Capet Duverger 2010 boasts classic Bordeaux aromas of cedar infused blackcurrant, toasty vanilla, cigar box and dried tobacco. The 2010 vintage is renowned for its concentration and richness, and these characteristics certainly aren’t missing in this wine. Silky tannins and nicely weighted acidity provide the structure to support a sumptuous core of classy black fruit, which is wrapped in a gorgeous streak of toasty oak. This is classic right bank Bordeaux, and despite the power of the vintage, this wine is certainly approachable now.
