Cuvée Viva 2010
One of the greatest vintages of Château Gigault, it is characterized by its aromas of ripe fruit and blackcurrant liqueur, with floral notes (peony and old rose). Racy, balanced and fleshy, it gives even more after 7 years of ageing, enriching itself with delicious aromas of truffles.
All the experts agree that the 2010 Viva is probably a flagship product of Blaye.

“Behind a dark red color, an intense bouquet of fruits, spices, toast and vanilla is revealed. The palate is frank in the attack, voluminous and solidly structured, long and warm in the finish. A wine of character that should be kept for three to five years.” Guide Hachette des Vins
Complex nose mixing truffle, undergrowth and citrus fruits. The limestone is very present and the length in mouth is exceptional.
