In 1995, we launched this revolutionary Bordeaux white and immediately won a prestigious Trophy. Winemaker Jean-Marc has been fine tuning it ever since. From the silver lining 2020, this white is brimful of grassy freshness and citrusy elegance.

With the first release of this wine 25 years ago, we showed judges and consumers alike that Bordeaux whites could combine France's classic elegance and freshness with vibrant fruitiness – in those days that was a novelty. And so it won the International Wine Challenge ‘White Wine of the Year’. A quarter of a century 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 zip and light tropical fruit. Equally appealing as a glass on its own as it is with fish, salads or spicy noodles.
"Delicious. This is my favorite white puts the others to shame for the price"
