“The 2015 Bordeaux vintage is extraordinary. You’re going to want to get your hands on some.” – James Suckling
James is just one in a chorus of expert voices singing the praises of Bordeaux 2015 – 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 2015 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 2015 won gold at the tough local show, Concours de Bordeaux. Then, it went on to take gold at the national show in Paris. It's also a guaranteed dinner party winner, especially if served with hearty roasted game or dark-meat poultry.
