Les Vignobles G. Arpin are the owners of Chateau Gachon. At Château Gachon, the Arpin family (who own four small châteaux in the region) have invested heavily in the estate over the last decade. Consequently, quality has never been higher. At Château Gachon, the Arpin family combine Merlot with both Cabernets to make their outstanding, oak-aged Cuvée Saint-Georges.
Chateau Gachon 2003
Gradual hillsides of gravel and clay in this satellite of northern Saint-Emilion are the home of Monsieur Gerard Arpin and his delightful red wines. Made from 70% Merlot and equal parts of both Cabernets the wine is a deep ruby with purple hues and has a soft nose of cherry, cassis, and spice. On the palate it is quite well balanced with a solid tannic structure and a complementary soft mid-palate of ripe red berry fruit. The wine is easy drinking in its youth but should age well for the next 10 years. The family recommends decanting it about an hour prior to serving, then pairing it with roast lamb or beef. Enjoy a taste of sheer opulence at a very reasonable price, courtesy of the exemplary Château Gachon.
