Château Gilette

Domain: Château Gilette

The Médeville family's relationship with the Sauternais region dates back to the marriage of Numa Médeville and Marie Despujols, the latter owning her own family estate in the heart of Preignac, as well as the Gilette vineyard. A renowned businessman and seasoned traveller, Numa Médeville was behind the many awards won by his estates. His grandson René Médeville is continuing his legacy at the Château Gilette. A man of conviction, he was committed to creating wines designed to keep, which now forms the founding pillars of the estate's reputation. Christian was next in line. A father to three girls, he took over the estate with Julie. She married Xavier Gonet, a wine-maker from Champagne, and together they split the management of Gilette and Champagne Gonet-Médeville. The legend of Gilette comes from its unusual aging: 15 to 18 years in concrete vats in a reducing environment. It is said that, during the war, a tank was abandonedovni and finally gave an absolutely exceptional wine. The wines are put on the market more than 20 years later. It is a veritable UFO, produced in extremely small quantities (5000 bottles) and highly appreciated by amateurs
