Château 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-Émilion, it is the property of the Arpin family, vigerons for eight generations, who have invested wisely in new cellar equipment to support a contemporary 'modernist' style of winemaking.
This claret is a blend of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%); this classic French red 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. Overall it is well-integrated, the time it has spent in oak barrel has added structure and spice to the palate.
