RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Capbern Gasqueton
Another relatively inexpensive gem from the '09 vintage... this lesser version of Calon-Segur is really worth seeking out: it is drinking well now - with power - but will settle for the gentle folk in about 3-5 years. Lots of Bordeaux bramble and cedar on the nose with soft tannin on the palate. Why wait? Buy now and drink up - as I suggest elsewhere for this vintage. 90 points.
External Reviews for Capbern Gasqueton
Looking good! Very St-Esthphe but with the extra fruit of 2009. Lots of both fruit and structure. Smoothness of fruit concentration. Jancis Robinson.
From the Calon-Ségur stable and very impressive! Blueish purple crimson.<br/>Very juicy and meaty. Lively fruit. Polished. Great vitality. Very much<br/>St-Estèphe on the finish. Minerals. But a quite amazing amount of<br/>sweetness on the front palate. Really wonderful expression of St-Estèphe<br/>2009 - though not of St-Estèphe in most vintages. <br/>(Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com, Apr 2010)
