The Must Kitchen & Wine Bar proved to be the perfect venue for the tasking of Château Gaby wines from 1998 to 2008. The room and the food was splendid. The charcuterie plates were a great kick off to the evening as guests settled in. The prosciutto and fig tartine with aged cheddar paired very well with the older vintages. The “fall of the bone” bison short rib was a clear winner!
Château Gaby has gone thru many changes over the years from new ownership, uprooting Cabernet Sauvignon vines to going organic. The wines have been thru stellar vintages, to good ones, to well … 1999 and 2007. The 2000, 2005, 2008 vintages were clearly favourites amongst our members.
It was a great (for some a first) experience tasting so many vintages from the same estate. Certainly a great way to spend a frigid February evening!
