Château Capet Duverger

Owned by Michel Duverger, former longstanding president of the co-op, who had been the driving force to improve the overall quality of the Château estates belonging to the Union, Château Capet Duverger is one of the examples of this success story with its classic Saint Emilion Grand Cru style.

Tasting Notes

This wine has good, ripe structure with mouth-filling spicy fruit and fine length. Lovely plummy fruit is backed by fine tannins making for a deliciously juicy wine.

Food Matches

A perfect partner for red meat, especially roast leg of lamb, although it makes a good match for roast poultry or moderately mature cheese.
