Rich & Elegant

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. Lots of little streams, called Jalles, cross the vineyard to drain the soil and to improve the quality.

A unique Bordeaux wine in that it is largely dominated by Petit Verdot (70%, with Cabernet Sauvignon in addition). The nose is intense and elegant, rich in fruit and sweet spices, completed with pastry and floral nuances. The palate is supple, generous and round, supported by fine and silky tannins and well integrated oak.

This bold wine will go very well with roasted meats. Thinking of some delicious burgers with blue cheese...

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.
