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.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
