Grand Village and "G" Acte 7 by the Guinaudeaus
What better way to kick-start the 2015 Bordeaux en primeur campaign than with three phenomenal Guinaudeau wines. These sister estates to Chateau Lafleur offer something unique and very appealing. Baptiste often describes the Grand Village estate as their laboratory, where they trial new techniques before they deploy them in Pomerol. The logic is clear and allows a modest ‘Bordeaux’ property to utilise some of the most cutting edge viticulture and vinification techniques. The wines have always been passionately made and have an extraordinary propensity to age gracefully. In recent years we have seen the quality of the red and white reach new levels of precision and intensity. In fact, the 2015s are quite possibly the best range ever made, with astonishing clarity of fruit, gorgeous textures and beautiful balance.

‘G’, a Fronsac estate with a ‘St Emilion’ terroir of limestone and clay also benefits from the Lafleur savoir-faire. The Guinaudeaus have planted the vineyard with Cabernet Franc cuttings taken from the Lafleur vineyard in Pomerol and have recently started a massale selection for Merlots too. A recent tasting of the 2009, the first vintage released, was an absolute delight. Each subsequent vintage has gained in clarity and purpose, culminating in the sensational 2015; a laser-like wine with vibrant fruit and a wonderful sense of harmony.

Despite their humble price-tags, these are serious and age-worthy wines - and 2015 is THE vintage to fill up your cellar with just these sorts of right bank wines. We particularly like the idea of these in large formats. Please find a full list of the options below.
