Château Grand Village




Bordeaux Blanc

Grape Variety:

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Château Grand Village, Blanc, 2018

Tasting Note:

A very fine, intense white Bordeaux from the Guinaudeau family of Chateau Lafleur fame in Pomerol. A blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon – the Sauvignon Blanc component originating from a clone in Sancerre that produces a less varietal and more nuanced wine. Restrained and quite savoury on the nose at first, bursting into life on the palate with an electric mix of white currant and citrus fruit, fused with more mineral tones of dry stones and salt characteristics. The Semillon adds some structure and body to the wine, as well as adding to the flavour profile with a ripe nectarine touch as well as complex herbal element. Mouth-watering and complex.
