Chateau Capet-Guillier is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, from a small estate lying to the south of the town of Saint-Emilion, close to the village of Saint-Hippolyte. The estate was founded in 1902 and for many years was owned by Antoine Moueix. Today, the estate belongs to the Jeanjean family (co-owners of Domaine Laroche, in Chablis). Stephane Derenoncourt leads the winemaking team, making an excellent wine from the estate’s three hectares of vines.
Intense, clear purple-red in colour, this wine offers cherry perfumes and hints of toast. On the palate it is full in body, with soft, balanced tannins and juicy red fruit on the finish.
