Chateau Gachon is located on 15 hectares of clay soils, a mere 400m from the world famous Chateau Petrus, close to the hamlet of Pomerol. Classified within the district of the Montagne Saint-Emilion, it is the property of the Arpin family, vignerons for eight generations, who have invested wisely in new cellar equipment to support a contemporary `modernist` style of winemaking.
This wine is a deep ruby colour with purple hues and has a soft nose of cherry, cassis, and spice. On the palate it is well balanced with a solid tannic structure and a complementary soft mid-palate of ripe fruits such as plums and red berries, well-integrated oak ageing added structure and spice to the palate.
