Vieux Chateau Gaubert is based in southern Graves with 29 hectares of vineyards. The Chateau was owned by the Gaubert family from the 18th Century until the last Gaubert died there in 1987. The property was then bought by Dominique Haverlan, who comes from a local wine family. He has painstakingly restored both the Chateau and vineyards, that were in a pretty poor state. The wines are now considered to be some of the best wines of Graves. This is aided by Haverlan giving his wines considerable bottle age before releasing.
The 2000 vintage is considered to be a fine vintage for Vieux Chateau Gaubert. Made from 50% split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the wine offers delicious sweet red fruit and seductive earthy tones. Remarkably vibrant for its age, you will find it a perfect match for a Sunday roast or cheese board.
