Notes

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. It is also used as something of a guinea pig to test new ideas and practices before adopting them at Chateau Lafleur. The wines here are spectacular value for money and continue to get better and better. A bottle of the 1990 was shown to us over dinner and it is still singing - chapeau! The 2014 is vivid and vibrant, brimming with bramble and plum fruit and hints of liquorice and dark chocolate. The fruit is velour textured and brightly polished. This really is a super-seductive effort with lovely balance. Complete, serious and very impressive. 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc.

Notes
The 2014 Grand Village is a delicious, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the flavors remain brisk and delineated. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red cherries offer energy and persistence. This is a gorgeous entry-level wine from the Guinadeau family.

Château Grand Village

Château Grand Village

Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau’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 estate also houses the family’s massale selection nurseries. The healthy virgin soils in a rich bio-diversity provide the favourable conditions to nurture old Bouchet cuttings from Chateau Lafleur.

The same 15 strong team who tend the vines at Chateau Lafleur is responsible for the viticulture and wine-making here. With all the resources and savoir-faire of one of Pomerol’s elite estates at their disposal, it is no surprise that the wines produced at Grand Village are spectacular. From the 2013 vintage, a new cuvee produced exclusively from Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc clones has been bottled. ‘Les Champs Libres’ is a miniscule production that demonstrates the outstanding quality of the terroir and the talent and ambition of the Grand Village team. It is fermented and aged entirely in new Taransaud barrels and marries the intensity and laser like focus of great Sauvignon Blanc to the gunflint and silken texture of something altogether more Burgundian.
