Located in the appellations Bordeaux and Bordeaux Superieur, Château La Gatte was founded in 1646. A mere 358 years later, in 2004, the estate was purchased by Hèléne and Michael Affatato. Hèléne, a Bordeaux native, came from Château Latour, where she held an executive position in Public Relations and Sales. Michael, an advertising executive turned wine afficionado, found the perfect marriage for his skills at Chapoutier, where he directed Sales and Marketing for the UK and American markets. Now the couple have dedicated themselves exclusively to their exciting new enterprise, sharing responsibilities in the vineyard, winery, and office. The property itself sits atop a famous limestone ridge, which is shared by some of St.-Emilion’s most noble chateaux. The west facing vines overlook the Dordogne River, and benefit from maximum sunlight. To quote Château Latour, “To make a Grand Vin, the vines must see the river.” – Description from mriskic

  • Château la Gatte Rosé Blend Bordeaux Rosé 2003


    Once again, we're in agreement. This is a great value. Full of character, it reminds me of a garden on a hot summer day. Lots of vegetal leafy qualities, a little bit of dirt and just the slightest hint of citrus zest and salty olives. Luke says it smells like racketball or a shoei helmet. But he likes it...those are some weird tastebuds. Espe... Read More
