Reviews & Scores

The 2015 Les Champs Libres (from the Guinaudeau family at Château Lafleur in Pomerol) includes a little Semillon Blanc this year. It was picked between September 5-9. It has an attractive bouquet with lime cordial, dried pineapple and honeysuckle scents that are very well defined. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, vibrant and energetic, the 100% new oak barely noticeable. This is one of the less-known gems from the Guinaudeaus and it comes highly recommended.
91-93 Points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate


I have had to depend on fellow taster Fiona Morrison MW for this description as I just cannot find my own tasting note on this ambitious wine for some reason (spreadsheet-itis?) but have regularly been impressed by previous vintages. 87% Sauvignon Blanc 13% Sémillon (which Baptiste Guinaudeau described as 'the vector of freshness'). She remarked that the wine, with a certain wild flower aroma,...

was well up to the standard of many a Pessac-Léognan. I suspect I may have actually given it 17 and hope to taste it again some time.
16.5+ Points, Jancis Robinson MW

TASTING NOTES

95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Slightly cloudy. Keen and fresh. Lemon-citrus fragrance with a chalky edge. Sweet touch on attack indicates maturity, thereafter the palate is long, linear, and direct. More restrained than Grand Village but great harmony and persistence. Just goes on and on. Class act and a long, long way from varietal Sauvignon. JR
