Château Guibon Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Guibon Rouge

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 reds are full-bodied and vigorous, and become smoother 2 or 3 years after the vintage.

Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This Château Guibon 2017 is a lovely, deep ruby-red colour with crimson highlights.

Nose

The nose harmoniously combines red and black fruit aromas, alongside delicate vanilla overtones.

Mouth

The palate is pleasantly fresh, and lifted by spicy notes. During the summer, this wine is ideal served with grilled meat shared with friends. It is just as enjoyable throughout the rest of the year, with a croque-monsieur or cheese platter.
