This wine combines the two passions of the Château de Cappes, the woodcock and the quest for perfection in each vintage. The "Plume du Peintre"or 'Painter's Feather" is used in painting for the precision and delicacy of its stroke. It can be found at the tip of the woodcock's wings and each one is unique. The artist must adapt himself and "feel" this feather which leaves no room for error. In turn, we select the best vines, a restricted yield and optimise the date of harvesting in order to reveal the quintessence of the "terroir". As the point of the feather places the final delicate touches on a work of art so a meticulous and precise blending of our merlots and cabernets permits a perfect balance between the grape varieties. The ruby tint of this wine, heightened by warm garnet tones, evokes ripe berries. The nose is subtle and delicate and the well-balanced palate expresses a juicy and elegant structure of fresh blackcurrants and blueberries.
Of a fine dark crimson colour with violet tints, this wine displays elegant, opulent aromas thanks to its percentage of cabernet sauvignon (35%). The bouquet of candied berries mingles blackberries and blackcurrants with the perfume of toasted vanilla. The ripe red fruit palate is warm and original with the characteristic fullness of the merlot grape (65%). A wine to be drunk now a joint of beef and mushrooms or a cheeseboard.
This exceptional vintage, 100 %, is of an intense ruby colour tinted with garnet. Elegant on the nose with notes of blackberries and blueberries. The smooth attack becomes fruity on the palate thanks to the maturity of the grapes. This wine, which was awarded a gold medal, will reveal its full potential with lamb or game (quail, pheasant). Ageing potential of 5 to 10 years.
This dark ruby red wine is predominantly Cabernet Franc (80%) with a hint of Petit Verdot (20%). Its powerfull, elegant bouquet is a combination of black fruits and spices. On the palate the flavours of cherries and prunes and silky tanins result in a concentrated, lingering finish suggesting a long future. Ideal with woodcock and truffles or coq au vin.
