Cap Royal Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge

Cap Royal takes its name from the royal Cordouan lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse of Europe, situated at the entrance of Gironde Estuary. This 14th century beacon once signalled safe passage to Bordeaux wine merchants, returning home after sharing the great wines of Bordeaux with the world. Cap Royal benefits from the expertise of Jean René Matignon, winemaker of Château Pichon Baron, Grand Cru Classé Pauillac.
