    Professional Ratings: 92 The Wine Advocate, 91 Wine Spectator

    Region: Fronsac, Bordeaux, France

    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Item no. 117185

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The blend is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, producing a wine with purity, ripe tannins, and admirable persistence on the palate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Gaby's new consultant, Dr. Alain Raynaud, has brought the best out of this property, fashioning a sleeper of the vintage. An impressive blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Gaby is deep, rich and concentrated. The only other Fronsacs / Canon-Fronsacs with this level of intensity and opulence are La Vieille Cure, Haut Carles and Fontenil. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade.

    The Wine Advocate

    Youthfully raw, with lots of sweet plum, grape and blackberry jam notes framed by overtly spicy toast. Not as tightly focused as others right now, but the stuffing is there.
