Chateau Gaby is a blend of three grape varieties - Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon - grown on the clayey limestone hills of the estate.
Lovely color, intense red with bright tints. Pretty, red fruit hints on the nose and in some vintages black fruit, too. Discretely woody that highlights the classy nature of this wine. Good, no-nonsense attack, moving attractively to red, then black fruit, very ripe, very elegant flavors with slightly toasted and spicy hints that linger on the finish.

Cuvèe Gaby is a blend of grapes selected from the best plots of property on the estate with more complex soil types and constitutes 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
It has a lovely deep color with bright tints. The bouquet is very elegant and multilayered with hints of spice and black and red fruit that delicately intermingle. On the palate, this wine is delicious and complex with round, silky tannins. Displays multiple layers and is a very subtle, elegant wine.
