Both Jean Louis and Christine Nadau were born into winemaking families, whose roots go back over 150 years. The vineyards of the Nadau family are located to the south of Libourne at Faleyras, on the limestone plateau at the heart of l’Entre-deux-Mers. The vineyard of Château Gillet is spread over 70 hectares and produces 350,000 bottles annually. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are grown and this ensemble gives the wine a complexity that unites fullness with structure. The vines are trained in a simple Guyot system, and a full grass cover fills in the space between the vine rows. Modern winemaking techniques are used by the Château, but the wines are matured in oak casks to ennoble each vintage.
