Château Gaby 2008

This is a delicious wine from Château Gaby in Canon-Fronsac imported by Bordeaux and Beyond.  Canon-Fronsac is a very small appellation (about 250 hectares under vine) that sits just west of the township of Libourne close to the Gironde estuary.  It’s surrounded by the larger Fronsac appellation, with Saint-Émilion and Pomerol to the east.  In the glass, the 2008 vintage has alluring aromatics of chocolate and plums.  The finish on the palate is quite long, with a lovely balance and moreish fine grained tannins.  Buy.
