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.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Nice cherry red color.

Nose

 Pleasant, exhales notes of small red fruits and raspberry, enhanced by a touch of licorice.

Mouth

Attack is supple. It is a round and well-balanced wine, with melted tannins and a very pleasant freshness.  We appreciate the tasty aromas of black cherry. Easy to drink, well structured, this Château Guibon 2018 will be the perfect companion of a grilled red meat or even an vegetables pie.
