Unparalleled Terroir

Flanked by the Dordogne River, the picturesque hills of the satellite appellation of Canon-Fronsac boast the same characteristics as those of the renowned Saint-Emilion appellation. Limestone soils with clay sub soil and natural drainage combined with perfect exposure to the sun produce very favorable ripening conditions for all grape varieties, especially the Cabernet Franc, which is used in increasing proportions in the final blend of Chateau Gaby’s wines. For years, the wines from this appellation have been considered an insider’s secret but recently, their quality is attracting attention around the world.
