Unparalleled Terroir

Flanked by the Dordogne River, the picturesque hills of the satellite appellation of Canon-Fronsac boast the same characteristics as the renowned Saint-Émilion. Limestone soils layered on top of clay buried deep in the earth with natural drainage enjoy perfect exposure to the sun, resulting in the most favorable ripening conditions for all grape varieties. This especially includes the Cabernet Franc which is used in increasing proportions in the final blend of Château Gaby’s wines. For years, the wines from this appellation have been considered an insider’s secret, but recently their quality has attracted attention around the world.
