Tasting Notes: Beautiful dark and intense ruby color. Fruity aromas of cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant. Supple and round attack on the palate. Well balanced with ripe and velvety tannins. Long aftertaste with fruity flavors.

International Wine Report: “The 2018 Chateau Gillet offers aromas of red berries and cherries, which are laced with spices, tobacco and wet stones. On the palate this offers a medium body with a silky mouthfeel. This shows a lovely combination o f fruit and acidity which is underlined by a mineral streak through the finish. This is accessible today, but should also hold up nicely with some additional bottle age.”
