Gilbert et Gaillard tasting note
Full red in color, spicy, fruity in scent with nuances of blackberries, thyme and a hint of oak. Round and full of attack, aromatic in the aftertaste with soft and ripe tannin.
The rise of iconic Southern French wines began in the 1980s and 1990s. Often these were extreme wines: overwhelming in wine tastings, but mostly over-concentrated, heavy and therefore with little drinking pleasure. In the meantime, the widely shared opinion is that the best terroirs - such as Pic Saint-Loup, La Clape, Terrasses de Larzac and Saint-Chinian - can excel with refined wines.
The fifteen-hectare Château Gilbert & Gaillard is part of this hall of honor of southern French top terroirs. Elegance and complexity are combined here. This is high quality wine! This is partly due to the careful maturation of the grenache (40%), syrah (48%) and mourvèdred grapes (12%) and a traditional vinification in special, tulip-shaped cement cuves.
The grapes are picked by hand and selected for quality on arrival at the cellar on a sorting table. Due to the modest oak influence and great finesse, the Gilbert and Gaillard duo conquers the top French restaurants. Not surprising, because this wine style combines very well with refined dishes.
