Winemaker Notes

A splendid Bordeaux color with blackish tinges, it shows no signs of development. The aromas are powerful, vinous and warm with scents of jammy black fruit, black pepper and orange zest. It is a dense, lightly-knit and concentrated wine that gives a long, spicy finish. It possesses tremendous aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Really concentrated on the nose, with coffee, blackberry and vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and loads of fruit. This is very extracted, but it works. Slightly hollow midpalate, but should fill out with age.

Chateau Cap De Mourlin, France
Chateau Cap De Mourlin Winery Image
In 1983, Jacques Capdemourlin pieced together this vineyard, which for many years had been divided between his father and uncle. Considerable renovation work was carried out to equip the estate with the most up-to-date technology for wine-making and maturing (construction of a new vat house, creation of an air-conditioned area for malolactic fermentations and barrel storehouse).

The wines of Chateau Cap de Mourlin always endeavor to convey the excellence of their terroir.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
