Arguably the loveliest estate in the Fronsac appellation, Chateau Gaby is nestled on a hillside overlooking the gentle meander of the Dordogne River.
The first vines were planted on Gaby's hillside in the 1600's, when the wines of the region were favored in English Court, and Château Gaby was able position itself amongst the best Fronsac wines due to the winemaker's focus on quality.
In 2016, the historic estate was purchased by Tom Sullivan, a Boston businessman. “I bought Château Gaby, because it was the only property whose name I could pronounce,” grins Tom. Right at the top of the hill the old post relay station overlooks the vines, while lower down lies the village of Fronsac and the peaceful River Dordogne.
In addition to Gaby, Sullivan also acquired Moya and Château du Parc, and has enlisted Damien Landouar who has been pampering the vines since 1998 as technical director.
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.
Gaby Cuvée 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.
