Expert Review
Jane Anson - Decanter

From the Janoueix stable, this is firm, bright and bristling in colour and flavour - an archetypal modern St-Émilion. It's not as successful in 2017 as in the recent past, as the character of the fruit is just a little too soft to support the oak, and it could do with a touch more light and air, but there's still plenty to enjoy. A well-made wine for medium-term drinking. Drinking Window 2022 - 2032

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

The 2017 Cap St George is deep garnet-purple colored with an earthy nose of tilled soil, mossy bark and underbrush with a core of red and black plums. The palate is medium-bodied and just a little lean in the middle with a chewy frame and attenuated finish.

Jacques Dupont - Le Point

Expressif, fruits noirs, bouche ronde, du volume, tanins veloutés, finale un peu ferme, doit s’assouplir. 14-14/20

Tasting Notes

The unique style of Château Cap Saint George can be defined by respect for an exceptional terroir, by precise, meticulous vinification and by care to preserve the fruit and all its complexity. Each vintage is a chance to reaffirm an investment in purity and ‘Grand Cru’ techniques. We never chase after excess but rather clearly defined flavours and textures that reveal finesse, with subtle use of oak that is integrated and never dominates the fruit. Cap Saint George is a fine wine that represents its terroir, sculpted by the techniques and knowledge of Jean-Philippe Janoueix.

Winemakers Note
