The remarkable quality of this wine also lies in meticulous work carried out in the vineyard over several years, as well as in appropriate winemaking techniques chosen to encourage the extraction of fruitiness and colour, without causing any excess in structure.
Showing a dark garnet-red hue, after swirling this 2018 it opens up on excellent, powerful spicy hints. The body is full and rich; the texture of tannin is perceptible, but supple, with fruit mixing elegantly with touches of mild spices and it has good freshness on the finish: everything is ready for an enjoyable tasting.
A family-owned property since 1960, 3 generations from father to son, the management of Château Gabarey was taken over by Guillaume Clemenceau in 2004. He cultivates 40 hectares of vines in the Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur AOC, on the clay-limestone plateau of Juillac overlooking the Dordogne River (facing the hillsides of Castillon), an excellent terroir for Merlot.
