In the heart of the tiny village of Saint-Estèphe, the church belfry casts a tranquil shadow over the 17th century façade. 100 year-old trees in the grounds calmly observe the passing of ships along the estuary. At Château Capbern, the atmosphere is both peaceful and classical. For over 120 years now, this château has shared a common history with the owners of Calon Ségur. Today, thanks to its technical teams and state-of-the-art vat cellar built in 2010, with its integrated gravity-flow and plot by plot vinification facilities, every means has been put at the disposal of this estate and its 38 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, to produce a wine of great elegance and classical beauty.
