Reviews of purchase Chateau Gilette, Sauternes AOC, 1989
Wine has a light golden color.
The taste of wine is quite spicy, with hints of honey, curry and cumin. The finish is long, with notes of exotic and tropical fruits, as well as nutty undertones.
Aromatic bouquet of wine abounds in shades of green tea leaves, almonds, dried oranges, mangoes and nuances of marzipan.
The wine goes well with delicate fruit desserts, sponge cake and sand, as well as with foie gras, blue cheese and white meat poultry, cooked on the coals.
Chateau Vest - this exceptional wine, produced only in the best harvest years (almost seventy years of the Chateau was released about 20 vintages, the youngest of today - from the harvest of 1985). Because of the peculiar rules Chateau Gilette not produce wine on sale before 20 years, the owner of the castle, Christian Medvil, earned the nickname "antiquarian Sauternes". Current owner Julie Gonet-Medvil, heiress of many years of family tradition, not yet released any proper Sauternes: all that is now bottled under the label Chateau Gilette, was created by her parents and grandfather Rene Medvilem.
On a small vineyard (an area of only 4.5 hectares) owned Chateau Gilette, grown varieties Semillon (85%), Sauvignon Blanc (10%) and Muscadelle (5%). Previously Chateau produces wines with varying degrees of acidity - dry, semi-dry, sweet and extra-sweet (Creme de Tete (Creme de Tete)). Now go all the wines Chateau as "Crème de Tête". Just a year carried out from 3000 to 6000 bottles of wine.
