2000 Chateau Capet Duverger


Country: France
Region: St. Emilion
Alcohol: 13%
Price: €11,50
Closure: Cork

I bought this wine on a whim - most probably because it was on sale in some random wine shop. This is a vineyard that I had never heard of, and certainly couldn't find all that much about it on the web either as I find it the way with many French wines.

What I do know is that this chateau has a rather small with a vineyard of around 7 hectares in size. As you would expect from a right-bank Bordeaux vineyard Merlot dominates the vine plantings with 64% followed by Cabernet Franc (28%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8%). It's safe to say this red blend contains the same varieties in similar proportions. The average age of the vines is 29 years.

Here is my tasting note:

Nice deep purple, red in colour. Shows some age with the brick-red near the edge of the glass. Typical Merlot nose of plummy, black fruit. The wine took a while to open up and show it's true colours but when it did it showed the same plums and black fruit as on nose. Very much Merlot in it's softness and roundness with some firm tannins but not enough here for mine. Ends with slightly bitter red fruit on the finish. A nice red, though not quite what you would expect from a grand cru.

I drank the Ch. Capet Duverger 2000 and thought it was a nice and surprising wine. I got it from a friend, and do not know what he paid for it. As he did not give it for a special occasion and as he is not too much into wine, I do not expect he paid more than approximately € 10. I agree with the tasting notes on the site, however would like to add that it is only a Grand Cru and not a Grand Cru Classé. There are about 180 Grand Crus in the St. Emilion area. In the past I made the mistake to buy St. Emilion Grand Crus, thinking I would get value for money, but getting disappointed with the first sip. This one, however, was not like that at all.

you're dead right. i must admit i wasn't thinking about the grand cru classe wines when i wrote that comment. in st emilion most of the remotely interesting vineyards are classified grand cru which makes this term there rather meaningless. i guess i was making a rather lame effort at pointing this out; that the term grand cru should stand for more than it really does.

Label time of year again! I do them in word. The
original was simple ... A few years ago. Already that I've made deletions, it appears I cannot put simply in an additional name & address in the erased (empty) area.
Whether I utilize tab, space, or ctrl tab, the arrow visits the following label placement. Not at the top line, to begin with a name. Why is that? Just what's the option?
Just what am I doing wrong? I considered simply making an additional tag design template.
But that appears a lot of operate vs a basic update.

Thanx anyone ...:).
