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.


label of 2021 Château Guibon white
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 85% / Sémillon 15%

Weather

2021 was marked by very capricious weather: heavy rainfall in the spring, a frost episode in April causing major damage... But warm days and cool nights followed one another from mid-August onwards, ensuring the success of the vintage.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Clear, pale yellow colour with silver highlights.

Nose

Intense, the nose is dominated by delicate citrus notes (grapefruit), mixed with tasty notes of exotic fruits (passion fruit, mango).

Mouth

The attack is frank, followed by a beautiful intensity in the mouth. The balance between fat and freshness is a success. The notes of exotic fruits (mango, candied orange) and citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) already perceived in the nose, are combined here with a lot of gourmet. Beautiful finish. A wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, but also with a seafood platter, squid à la romaine, or fish à la plancha.
