In 1995, we launched this revolutionary Bordeaux white and immediately won a prestigious IWC Trophy. Award winning winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua has been fine-tuning it ever since. From the excellent 2018 vintage, it’s gooseberry fresh and elegant.
"Best Sauvignon. Faultless – all-time great. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
With the first release of this wine 20+ years ago, we showed judges and consumers alike that Bordeaux whites could have the elegant restraint of France and also vibrant fruitiness – that was a novelty back then. And so it won the International Wine Challenge ‘White Wine of the Year’. Over two decades later Haut-Brion trained winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua gets no less excited about his pride and joy – personally earmarking the best grapes from Sauveterre in the Entre Deux Mers and supervising every step of production. The result is a deliciously appetising white, with a perfect balance of grassy freshness, lemon and light tropical fruit and terrific zip. As equally at home as a glass on its own as it is with fish, salads or spicy noodles.
