Château Grand Village




Bordeaux Blanc

Grape Variety:

Sauvignon Blanc

Les Champs Libres, 2017

Tasting Note:

A 100% Sancerre clone Sauvignon Blanc from Fronsac’s clay and limestone soils matured in barrels though displaying no obvious wood character such is the pure and crystalline lemongrass, lime peach and mint character that charges from the glass. There’s a beautiful balance, as finely weighted as they come with layer after layer of clear sweet citrus fruit and stones, impressive concentration and texture and a zesty and highly persistent finish. Hard to pin down as Sauvignon Blanc, but entirely Champs Libres. One of Bordeaux’s truly great whites.
