I was first introduced to Château du Gaby - or Château Gaby as it is now known - several years ago by an ex colleague of mine who knew the then owner, David Curl. Until quite recently David owned this and Château Moya in nearby Castillon - Cotes de Bordeaux - see the 2011 vintage also available from Wines With Attitude®. I have met the winemaker for both Châteaux, the amiable Damien Landouar, and have been lucky enough to visit Château Gaby with its renowned river view. Fortunately for us Damien remains winemaker at Gaby and Moya under the new ownership.
My ex colleague slipped me several bottles of this 2002 vintage over the years and I was always impressed with the elegance of this wine and with its development. This is an opportunity to acquire a beautifully developing typical Merlot-dominant Right Bank Bordeaux, an elegant, well-structured wine from under-rated appellation, Canon-Fronsac AOC.
Recommended with steak, beef casseroles, lamb, chicken, turkey and smooth enough to have with pork dishes. Also good with cheese, tomato-based dishes, mushrooms, roast vegetables etc.
It is worth decanting and letting this wine breathe for an hour or so before serving. There may be a little sediment.
An elegant, well-structured wine from an under-rated appellation, Canon-Fronsac AOC; an opportunity to acquire a 2002 Bordeaux displaying fruit and spice, with soft tannins. Very smooth
