About This Wine

By Bordeaux standards, the Duvigneaus are relative newcomers.

In a wine region where many estates have been in the same families for generations, Chateau Cap de Biolet has been owned by the Duvigneaus for a “mere” four-plus decades. They acquired the property in 1972, and it’s currently overseen by Anne-Marie Duvigneau.

The estate is located in the commune of Doulezon, southwest of Saint-Emilion, where some of the world’s finest Merlot-based blends are crafted. The 2015 red from Chateau Cap de Biolet is a delicious melding of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

How delicious? Enough to earn a gold medal in the 2016 Aquitane Concours competition, and to impress our tasting panel. The fruit flavors are juicy and ripe, and the wine leaves a lingering sense of sweetness. The Duvigneaus may not have been in Bordeaux as long as some families, but you’d never know it from the quality of their wines.
