(06-2014) The 1971 Chateau Gilette Creme de Tete has a slightly muffled nose at first, but it begins to clear with rigorous aeration. It eventually reveals scents of dried honey, dried white flowers, a touch of curry powder and marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with a lightly viscous entry, nicely balanced with orange rind and spice. This is nicely focused, with just the right amount of nuttiness to leave a dry taste that begs another sip. This is a fine 1971, although the 1967 is better. Drink now-2020+. Tasted March 2014.

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. .
