(90-92) The 2016 Les Champs Libres, produced by the Guinaudeau family of Pomerol's Château Lafleur, is 100% Sauvignon Blanc picked 9, 11 and 13 September, matured in Burgundy barrel with 70% new oak, the remainder one-year old.

The palate is well balanced with fine delineation, a lovely fatness to this Les Grands Libres, but counterbalanced with that bite and tension to maintain the freshness. There is a hint of ginger right on the finish that persists on to the aftertaste. -Neal Martin
