“Let’s cut to the chase: 2016 is unequivocally a great vintage in Bordeaux. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.” – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Mr. Martin is just one in a chorus of expert voices singing the praises of Bordeaux 2016 – one sip of this silky-rich find, and you may join in yourself.
Our expert contact in Bordeaux, Jean-Marc Sauboua, tasted Château Gabarey’s 2016 release and knew it was something special. It’s from the renowned Clémenceau family (third-generation winemakers who also own Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Château Vieux Verdot!). After a few quick words and a handshake with their talented winemaker, Pierre Fillaudeau, and Jean-Marc secured a precious few cases.
Made with hand-selected, plum-rich Merlot grapes (plus a dash of Cabernet Franc, which adds a touch of floral, earthy charm), it’s a perfect example of the kind of supple, fresh, ready-to-enjoy reds this vintage has produced – and it’s not just Jean-Marc who fell for its charms ...
Château Gabarey 2016 won a gold medal at the tough Concours des Vins Lyon. It’s also a guaranteed dinner party winner, especially if served with hearty roasted game or dark-meat poultry. Secure your share today.
