Tasting Note:

Jacques and Sylvie's home estate is situated in the commune of Mouillac in the canton of Fronsac. Over a third of Grand Village is planted with vines in the best and most suitable plots for viticulture. The rest of the estate is woodland or is used to rear cattle or produce cereal crops. It is an enchanting estate and one that despite its lowly appellation is capable of producing excellent wines. The Guinaudeaus are well travelled and it is their outward looking approach that has led to replanting with Sancerre clones of Sauvignon Blanc. Their whites certainly have a Dagueneau-esque character to them and they seem to be getting greater purity and intensity every year. 46% Sauvignon Blanc and 54% Semillon. Bizarrely this has more Sauvignon characteristics than the 100% cuvee Les Champs Libres. Packed with gooseberries, and intense citrus fruits, this is complex and gastronomic. Wonderfully fresh with yeasty notes infused with hints of minerals. Delicious.
