Château Capdet

Cru Bourgeois

Listrac-Médoc AOC – Bordeaux – France

This former Puy de Menjon estate became Château Capdet in the early 20th century, and is an archetypal, traditional Listrac wine: strongly colored, fruity, revealing fresh tannins, a dense texture and long finish, to which it adds great ageing potential.

It also significantly bears the mark given to wines by Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the gravelly hilltops of Fonréaud, which makes it a safe bet.
