Château Gigault was acquired in 1998 by Christophe Reboul, who had purchased Blaye's Château Les Maréchaux the year before. He immediately employed Stéphane Derenoncourt, who makes wine at some of Saint Emilion’s greatest estates (La Mondotte, Canon La Gaffelière and Pavie Macquin), as consultant winemaker. The château releases two wines – a traditionally made claret and this, their no expense spared Cuvée Viva, named after Reboul's late daughter. Critic Robert Parker described it as “consistently one of my picks as an overachieving wine”, while James Suckling gave this vintage a 92-point thumbs up, calling it "excellent value". Hand picked, low yield Merlot aged in new oak, this is a rich, velvety, well structured claret. Ideal with lamb.

"Rich, juicy; a fresh array of red plums and mulberries. Great length and balance. Excellent value" James Suckling
