About the Winery
Château Tour de Gilet
Château Tour de Gilet is located in Ludon Médoc, 16 km north of Bordeaux in the Médoc area. The Château was built on the foundation of an ancient abbey from the 12th century. At that time the vineyard was already surrounded by “jalles” or small criss-crossing drainage canals to help produce wines of higher quality. Today, oenologist Claude Gaudin makes an extraordinary wine at this small property, using techniques such as dense planting in the vineyard and green harvesting to lower the yield, sorting at the harvest and very natural wine making for maximum expression of the fruit.

Well this is a real treat to find a fully mature, solid quality Bordeaux, authentic and gravelly, now in perfect shape. Many of these 2006s have turned out marvelously, given longevity by their freshness, and have now developed into a complex and satisfying ensemble. This is one such wine, one for the textbooks for students of Bordeaux to be sure. Tasted February 2021.

Translucent and super-expressive, Dyer's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is magnificent. Sweet plum, graphite, lavender and spice develop in the glass, but it is the wine's exceptional balance and captivating beauty that stand out most. The richness of the vintage has filled out the wine's classically built frame nicely. Even so, what comes through is a powerful, structured Diamond Mountain Cabernet that exudes class and polish from the first taste to the last. Don't miss it.
