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.
"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.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"
The Wine Advocate
"The solid core of damson plum, raspberry coulis and blackberry preserves flavors is lined with singed savory, tobacco and charcoal notes. Offers a juicy edge on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2020. 3,300 cases made."
