"A blockbuster Fronsac, opaque red in colour, and with a very oaky nose that is sweet and intense…” – Decanter Magazine
This 80/10/10 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon includes a beautifully light, clear and precise range of aromas of florals and red and black fruit—including violets—as well as aromas of sandalwood, clover and morels. In the mouth, this is a juicy red with tastes of mandarins, plums as well as mint and tarragon. Pair with blackened fish or beef bourguignon. 94 points" - Tom Mullen FORBES
"Fronsac. It's a little-known viticultural area close to two famous ones, St.-Emilion and Pomerol, According to one French tome, the Canon-Fronsac wines are rich and supple” - Frank J. Prial New York Times

Gaby Mix Case 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010
This wine, produced from a small parcel, is still very firm, young and tight. Its tannins dominate, leaving only hints of the red berries that should be there. It has weight and should open up over the next few years. - Wine Enthusiast
Winemaker Notes: Damien Landouar
Château Gaby 2002 A miraculous month of September saves a vintage where everything had been fierce against it until the eve of the harvest. After a catastrophic spring and summer, the Indian summer saves 2002. 80% Merlot, 10% Cab Sauvignon, 10% Cab Franc. Ruby color with orange notes. The nose is delicate, notes of stewed red fruits, undergrowth, blond tobacco. The palate is fresh and delicate with a very nice minerality and a very nice balance.
Château Gaby 2004 A vintage of great quality. Spring and early summer were very lenient, the end of summer was more chaotic! But once again September was exceptional. 80% Merlot, 10% Cab Sauvignon, 10% Cab Franc. Intense color with orange notes. The nose is of great finesse, with notes of black fruits, tobacco and cedar. The mouth is full and creamy with a very nice freshness. It is a very balanced wine with great finesse.

The palate is of great aromatic complexity, the spice and fruit notes blend perfectly with its minerality, very good length on the palate.
