Chateau Du Gaby 2003: a rare gem

Gaby 2003 really is a rare gem.

I picked up a case from the Chateau recently, via a friend of a friend. One of the last cases available, so I hear.

It's a stunning wine that's made me eat some humble pie.

I'd been arguing that for someone of my limited means, who can't access the really stunning right bank wines, the left bank offers way better value.

But Gaby 2003 at around £20 a bottle has shut me up. What a wine.

Big, husky, and plum coloured, it drinks like a wine ten years older.

Who says Merlot dominated wines at around £20 a bottle can't match up to the Medoc and St Estephe? Not I, any longer.
