Chateau Gilbert & Gaillard 2017 Saint Chinian (COMING SOON)


Why We Love It:

If Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre were to pick a perfect place to go on vacation, it would be the Languedoc. Here, these grapes find the kind of weather and beach (soil) where they can relax, unwind and put their feet up. It’s with seeming ease that these grapes produce supple, generous and ripe red wines, with deep concentrated colour, intensely fragrant aromas of black fruit, liquorice and spices, and a deep and persistent palate of dark fruit and spice, all perfectly framed by silky smooth tannins. Owners Philippe Gaillard and François Gilbert are key opinion leaders and two of France’s most respected wine critics. For the last 25 years, they have tirelessly promoted wines showing a sense of place, and now, at Château Gilbert & Gaillard, their ambition is to allow this fabulous terroir, on a par with the finest growths, to fully reveal itself.

Here are a few of our favourite pairings (with recipes) for this delicious wine:

Lamb Tagine w/ Prunes – RECIPE
Rosemary & Red Wine Braised Beef Shortribs – RECIPE
Pork Sausage & Black Olive Pizza – RECIPE



Tasting Notes:

“Wild thyme and rosemary on the nose, a savoury element coming through. On the palate, it’s juicy and has some lively fresh flavours, cherries and redcurrants but also violets with a splash of liquorice spice around the edges.”
