Chateau Capbern Gasqueton

The start of the first age of the modern era for chateau capbern gasqueton begins when the left bank vineyards were purchased by georges gasqueton in 1894. The estate took its name from two of its more famous owners, the gasqueton and capbern families. The gasqueton family managed the estate until 2012. Most recently, the figurehead of chateau capbern gasqueton was the interestingly charming, albeit, quite eccentric madame denise gasqueton. Madame gasqueton managed the property while marching to the beat of her own drummer until she passed away at the age of 87 in late september, 2011.

The following year, the second and current modern era for the chateau began july 2012 when chateau capbern gasqueton and chateau calon were sold to the large french insurance company, suravenir insurance. Jean-pierre moueix , the owner of petrus and the massive negociant company duclot, took a minority stake in chateau calon segur and chateau capbern gasqueton. Starting with the 2013 vintage, they droped the second part of their name and began selling the wine under the simpler name of just chateau capbern.
