The parcel selection, the blending, and overall winemaking is made by Jean-René Matignon, technical director for Château Pichon Baron, the illustrious 2nd growth estate in Pauillac. Cap Royal is named for the 14th century royal Cordouan lighthouse, the oldest in Europe which is situated at the entrance of Bordeaux’s Gironde River. This classic red is an oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from fine vineyards throughout the Médoc. Look for black fruit, wild strawberry and violet aromas with a touch of toasted bread. The mouth is ample and silky with a long finish. Perfect for foods on the grill or with cheese and pâté. Cap Royal is owned by Compagnie Medocaine des Grands Crus, a fully owned subsidiary of AXA millesime also proprietor of Château Pichon Baron.

James SucklingQuite modern, offering spicy oak and mocha on the nose amid aromas of blueberries, cassis and bracken. The palate’s smooth and layered with mid-weight red fruits and lighter tannins that hold the finish in succulent style.

Wine EnthusiastMade by Jean-René Matignon, technical director of Château Pichon Baron in Pauillac, the wine is finely structured, showing polished wood aging. The velvet black fruits and fine acidity are already well integrated. Drink from 2018.
