Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
(Ed 1998)
This is a more reserved, austere, restrained wine, with a tight but attractive nose of loamy earth, roasted coffee, herbs, and sweet, honeyed fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with tightly-wound flavors, good acidity, and moderate levels of botrytis, this is a less generous yet stylish, polite Gilette that should continue to age well for 15 or more years.

Château informations
Château Gilette is a property of 4.5 hectares located in the heart of the village of Preignac.  Château Gilette is a small vintage Sauternes is legendary for its old vintages. In fact, at Gillette, Julie Gonet-Médeville does not sell his wines after twenty years of aging. . Chateau Gilette yields are extremely low, between 5 and 10 hectoliters per hectare and that nectar must be exceptional to merit the appellation "cream headache" and spend more than fifteen years in cement vats before being bottled and sold a few years later. .
