Château Guibon Red

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

There was record rainfall during the first half of 2013. Spring was very cool, even cold (May and June), and this caused a major delay in vine growth (flowering). Much more clement weather (warm and sunny) arrived in July and lasted until the harvest.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Château Guibon 2013 is a brilliant deep-garnet-red colour with lively violet highlights.

Nose

The nose is particularly elegant. Swirling in the glass releases delicious red fruit aromas (raspberry and redcurrant), with slightly smoky nuances.

Mouth

The wine starts out smooth and round on the palate, going on to reveal very attractive flavours of fresh fruit with hints of blackcurrant and clove. The aftertaste is every bit as delicious with a touch of vanilla. This wine is enjoyable with grilled rib of beef, fine delicatessen meats, or a classic ham sandwich.
