Reviews & Scores

This is really lively with searing acidity that works well with the phenolic and ripe fruit to the wine. Dense and exciting. Less than a third of the normal production. 
93-94 Points, James Suckling

The 2017 Les Champs Libres was picked from 29 August to 2 September according to winemaker Baptiste Guinaudeau (see Lafleur in Pomerol). It has an attractive bouquet with nectarine, white peach and a touch of almond, all very well defined and showing a little more intensity than the Grand Village Blanc tasted alongside. The palate is well balanced with a twist of sour lemon on the entry, fine depth with plenty of energy. There is a touch of sea salt towards the finish with a hint of ginger on the aftertaste, completing what is rapidly becoming one of the benchmark white wines of Bordeaux.
92-94 Points, Neal Martin

There is...

only one-third of the normal production this year. Composed of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 Blanc has electric intensity and scents of pure mandarin peel, pink grapefruit, yuzu zest and crushed stones. The palate is medium-bodied, very elegant, intense and crisp, finishing long and chalky.
90-92, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate

TASTING NOTES

"Red Rock Terrace displays a beautiful core of blackcurrant, crème de cassis and juicy red plums. Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
