Princess Gaby is the second wine of Château Gaby, located in Canon-Fronsac on the Right Bank of Bordeaux, France. For years, wines from this appellation have been considered an insider's secret. But, recently, their quality is attracting attention around the world. Château Gaby and Château Gaby Cuvée are produced entirely from older vines grown on the limestone-rich hills of the Gaby estate, making them some of the finest wines in Bordeaux.
Princess Gaby is a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Well-balanced with elegant flavors and fine tannins, the wine tastes of transformation. Strong on the nose with red fruits and licorice notes, Princess Gaby softens on the palate with a long finish and traces of vanilla. To add complexity, Princess Gaby is aged in barrels used to make the award- winning Château Gaby. The wine's exceptional character is derived from Canon-Fronsac's privileged climate, silica clay soil, and the expertise of a passionate team. At Château Gaby, we believe in pampering the grape as a whole fruit and respecting the environment. Our vintner works to pursue organic initiatives for the 20,000 bottles of Princess Gaby produced each year.
