Chateau du Gaby Canon-Fronsac 2001

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for ten pounds from a wine merchant in Sussex.Canon-Fronsac is an appellation from the area to the north-west of the town of Libourne on the right or east bank of the river Dordogne about 20 miles east of the city of Bordeaux.The old Chateau and the park and the 16 hectare vineyard go back to at least the mid 17th century and it was bought in 1999 by a Canadian called David Curl.The wine consists of 85% merlot,10% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc and is aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my meat pie and I enjoyed it.There is lots of blackcurant or plum type fruit there and the tannins are soft and mellow.This is a well put together wine and I thought it a quality product.I am not the only one who thinks so because the well known wine critic Robert Parker gave this 2001 vintage 87 points.

Chateau du Gaby is a stunning, historic chateau perched on top of a sloping limestone plateau and facing south over the river Dordogne. The chateau is surrounded by its own park and 16 hectares of rolling vineyards where low wooded hills and the lazy meanderings of the Dordogne meet. Lovingly restored, the interior of the chateau reflects the beauty of Bordeaux's prettiest countryside in which it is locate
