Château Gilbert & Gaillard 2016

FRR0784A

Chateau Gilbert & Gaillard的誕生,有賴於兩位葡萄酒發燒友,兼著名酒評家Francois Gilbert及Philippe Gaillard的努力。兩人自1991年起,出版了行銷五大洲的Gilbert & Gaillard雜誌,將他們的酒評及葡萄酒知識與酒迷分享。多年來走訪世界各地的經驗,以及兩人多年來的專業知識,以及對葡萄酒的熱誠,令他們於南法的Saint-Chinian及Languedoc成立了Chateau Gilbert & Gaillard。Gilbert作為釀酒家族之子,而Gaillard作為主力研究釀酒風土的地理學博士,兩人都對大自然尤其尊重。而他們的釀酒哲學,就是希望將Chinian南部產區,以石灰岩為主的獨特風土,從葡萄樹上,帶到飲家的酒杯中,並原原本本的將葡萄酒中的清新,細緻與優雅表達出來。

Chateau Gilbert & Gaillard was born from the efforts of two wine enthusiasts and wine critics, Francois Gilbert and Philippe Gaillard. In 1991, they started publishing wine magazine Gilbert & Gaillard to share their wine critics and knowledge with wine lovers. The magazine is now available on 5 continents. Their years of experiences of travelling around the world and the professional knowledge of wine, as well as their passion for wine help them establish Chateau Gilbert & Gaillard in Saint-Chinian and Languedoc. Gilbert, as the son of the winemaker’s family, and Gaillard, as a doctor in Geography who specializes in the study of wine terroirs, accentuate the importance of nature. The winemaking philosophy of the Chateau is to transcribe the terroir of Chinian to the consumer, from the vine to the glass, keeping all these features namely, the freshness, the finesse and elegance.
