Tasting Notes

An expressive, concentrated and intense expression of Sauvignon Blanc, Champs Libres shows an incredible array of citrus, fresh pear, musk and white peach. The density of the palate is perfectly balanced by a lively acidity and precise fruit and minerality. An incredible expression of Bordeaux Blanc that is simply a must have for all Chateau Lafleur collectors and Bordeaux lovers alike. Armit Wines

Reviews & Scores

“Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the Les Champs Libres 2016 Blanc leaps from the glass with honeyed peaches, passion fruit, musk perfume and beeswax notes plus hints of pink grapefruit, cedar chest, struck match and mandarin peel. Medium-bodied with a lovely creaminess to the texture, it has fantastic intensity and depth with a very refreshing backbone and long mineral-laced finish.” 93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

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
