Here's a monster deal for Bordeaux lovers, from the exceptional 2010 vintage. Chateau du Gaby produced one of its finest wines ever, a great Merlot blend that garnered a 91-93 point barrel score from Wine Spectator
when it was just a baby. Now that it's bottled, we think it's even better, balancing ripe fruit, fresh acidity, and smooth tannins. Since competition for the 2010s is high, our stock is definitely limited and will go quickly at today's great discount! --Kristin Balabanian, Senior Buyer
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points
"Still very primal, but enticing, with sappy raspberry, sweet spice, melted licorice and linzer torte notes that have yet to stretch out fully. There's racy acidity as well, so this should knit nicely."
Chateau du Gaby wines are known for their finesse, concentration and excellent balance of acidity and tannin. While the wines age beautifully over 5-20 years, for those without the patience to wait, they typically begin to show their great charm after 3-4 years.
About Chateau du Gaby
Chateau du Gaby is a stunning, historic chateau perched on top of a sloping limestone plateau and facing south over the river Dordogne.
The chateau is surrounded by its own park and 16 hectares of rolling vineyards where low wooded hills and the lazy meanderings of the Dordogne meet. Lovingly restored, the interior of the chateau reflects the beauty of Bordeaux's prettiest countryside in which it is located.
