The wines of Chateau Gilette are released on average, between 20 and 25 years after the vintage! The wine remains in tank for close for almost 20 years before it’s even bottled! At that point, Chateau Gilette ages the bottled Sauternes wine for an additional 3-5 years!
The 4.5 hectare Sauternes vineyard of Chateau Gilette is planted to 90% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. located in the commune of Preignac. The walled in vineyard has a terroir of gravel, sand, rock, limestone and clay based soils.
Chateau Gilette at its best is filled with tropical, honey drenched fruit and spices. But the wine lacks vanilla, coconut or custard scents, as well as some of the fatness found in many Sauternes, as it was not aged in French oak barrels.
