Château Guibon White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Guibon Blanc

Nestled on one of the numerous slopes in the Entre-Deux-Mers, just a short distance from the famous medieval town of Saint-Emilion, Château Guibon has a very long history. The monks at the neighbouring abbey of La Sauve Majeure are known to have made wine on clay-limestone terroir here in the 17th century. This was already much appreciated by connoisseurs. The white wines are light, aromatic and fruity.

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Sauvignon blanc 75% / Sémillon 23% / Muscadelle 2%

Weather

Tasting Comment

Appareance

A very pale-yellow colour with lovely green highlights.

Nose

Sauvignon Blanc unveils its intense and powerful character on the nose, with particularly appetising citrus and tropical fruit aromas (pineapple).

Mouth

The intensity of the nose follows through to the round, generous palate, indicative of perfectly ripe grapes. The aftertaste is long and tangy with a pleasant aromatic finish. This Château Guibon 2018 is ideal paired with seafood lasagna, cheese gougères, or salmon with fennel.
