Château Capbern Gasqueton

A very special offer.

Château Capbern Gasqueton, St Estephe '08

We travel extensively in Bordeaux and have access to some of the finest châteaux and cellars. We unearthed this beauty recently from a property in the same area and ownership as Calon Ségur. Jean Moueix, the owner of Château Petrus has recently become a shareholder and this is a property to watch. We have managed to secure a parcel of 2008 which has been resting in the Moueix cellars since birth. The wine is wonderfully mature and is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, one third Merlot with just a splash of Petit Verdot. It has been aged in 50% new oak for 18 months and will be a wonderful partner to all meats and will give enormous pleasure now and over the next five years.

We have only 600 bottles available and the wine is packed in 6 bottle wooden cases. It would make a wonderful gift for any serious wine lover.

La Jasse Cellar Door is open

Once a year, just before the wine is bottled, we have the opportunity to offer our customers the chance to reserve some of our annual allocation of the new vintage at Domaine de la Jasse! Until the 30th April 2016, you have the rare opportunity to reserve some of what is probably one of La Jasse’s BEST RED vintages ever.

Domaine de la Jasse is situated some 15 kilometres from Montpellier in the heart of the most dynamic wine region in the Mediterranean area of France. Its name comes from the shelter and shade, known in the local dialect as “Jasse”, provided by the Domaine’s Plane tree. The iconic Plane tree, which is almost one hundred and ten years old provided the inspiration for the La Jasse trademark and logo. 

Today La Jasse is one of the leading high quality wine Domains in this region, where the very talented winemaker Bruno le Breton, employs the best wine innovations and techniques and has won 20 international GOLD medals with several of his wines. 

One of La Jasse’s main secrets is the involvement of Patrick Léon, the former winemaker of Château Mouton-Rothschild. Patrick Léon’s experience and credentials is very impressive; he has worked with Alexis Lichine at Château Lascombes, ‘Opus One’ with Robert Mondavi and Château Les Trois Croix with his son Bertrand. Patrick Léon’s involvement is invaluable and a solid guarantee for exceptional high quality wines at La Jasse!

The growing season at La Jasse was blessed with excellent weather conditions unlike other French wine regions. The weather conditions at Domaine de la Jasse have been incredibly good. They had an EXCEPTIONAL harvest!

Jasse Vieilles Vignes 2013

Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon accompanied with Merlot, this vintage has been aged in the best quality 225 litre French oak barrels for a 12 month period. Beautifully round with plenty of blackberry and spice, along with a subtle hint of vanilla from the oak. The tannins are silky soft, perfectly integrated with its fresh acidity, which provides the ultimate elegance and a lingering long finish! A great companion with grilled red meats, duck and game dishes or is just as good with mature cheese. It is perfectly ready to drink when bottled (decanting recommend), will develop more in the coming years. 

Jasse Blanc 2015


12 bottles at £9.50 / €13.50 per bottle

Shelf Price £11.99 / €16.99

The aromatic and floral Viognier grape combined with the mineral and fresh ripe fruit flavour of the Chardonnay grape creates a sensational flavour, with hints of green apple, lychee, apricot, honey and flowers. Compared to most other white wines, this new white wine captures the character of two full flavoured grapes, which makes a seriously tasty wine. 

Jasse Rosé 2015

12 bottles at £9.50 / €13.50 per bottle

Shelf Price £11.99 / €16.99

This aromatic rosé is made up of 40% Merlot, 30% Syrah, 20% Cabernet and 10% Grenache. The flavour is delicate with exquisite freshness and it has a beautiful bouquet of berries and juicy cherries.  It’s a delicious rosé and very food-friendly.  

Jasse Blanc & Rose 2015 Mixed Dozen



A mixed case of Domaine de la Jasse white and rose wines (6 of each). The white is a deliciously fruity and refreshing blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. The rose is delicate and softly fruited. Both are perfect patio wines, ideal for the summer and will be best enjoyed with light foods or even with a BBQ. Drink now and over the coming months for maximum enjoyment.

It's Back! Chocolate Block 2014!

Please form an orderly queue ladies and gentlemen; the latest vintage of The Chocolate Block is back at JN Wine!  

We know how many of you can’t get enough of The Chocolate Block's smooth and velvety texture, ripe red fruit characters and that vanilla/chocolate finish. It means we always sell out before our next allocation is ready, so if The Chocolate Block is your tipple of choice we'd recommend getting your order in early!

The Chocolate Block 2014

The Chocolate Block 2014 Pk6

Bottle Price: £21.00 / €29.75 Case Bottle Price: £18.90 / €26.78

Our most popular wine in its price bracket. The Chocolate Block is a blend of Syrah (71%); Cabernet Sauvignon (12%); Grenache Noir (11%); Cinsault (5%) and Viognier (1%). The wine matures in 1st (all of the Cabernet Sauvignon), 2nd and 3rd filled French oak barrels for 16 months before it gets a light egg-white fining and filtration. From renowned South African winery Boekenhoutskloof, it has a sensual bouquet with intriguing nuances of raspberry, strawberry and hints of spice. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth with fine tannins. The 2014 is an exotic and vibrant vintage with an iron edge running alongside the inky core of prunes, mulberries, cloves and floral notes. Textured, composed and seamless in style, this is very well-balanced and focused with great freshness and verve and an elegant finish.

Also now in available Magnums!
