The energy and rolling effect of the phenolic texture and acidity is really crazy in this. Full-bodied, dense yet agile and so fresh. It just grabs you and takes you for the ride. Love it. Pure sauvignon blanc from vines... The energy and rolling effect of the phenolic texture and acidity is really crazy in this. Full-bodied, dense yet agile and so fresh. It just grabs you and takes you for the ride. Love it. Pure sauvignon blanc from vines from the Loire. Drink or hold.

From the same clay-limestone plateau as the Grand Village white, but 100% massal selection from Sancerre. Here, the reduction and the minerality is in perfect harmony, with incredible persistency and tension. It has dancing spice and that wall-climbing slate texture, with no compromise between energy and richness. The salinity makes you want to go back for more. It's well structured and will clearly age - one of the best whites in Bordeaux, up there with the great Pessacs.

A killer white, the 2016 Les Champs Libres Blanc (100% Sauvignon) boasts a vivid gold color as well as loads of white grapefruit, white flowers, crushed rocks, and subtle pineapple aromas and flavor. Harvested from a massal selection from the Loire, grown in white clay and limestone soils, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has terrific mid-palate depth, bright acidity, and a great finish. Give it a few years and enjoy over the following 10-15.

Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the Les Champs Libres 2016 Blanc leaps from the glass with honeyed peaches, passion fruit, musk perfume and beeswax notes plus hints of pink grapefruit, cedar chest, struck match and mandarin peel. Medium-bodied with a lovely creaminess to the texture, it has fantastic intensity and depth with a very refreshing backbone and long mineral-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2016 Les Champs Libres, 100% Sauvignon Blanc from three parcels, has a slight reduction on the nose that works well, gradually opening to reveal orange pith and hints of pear.

The 2016 Les Champs Libres, 100% Sauvignon Blanc from three parcels, has a slight reduction on the nose that works well, gradually opening to reveal orange pith and hints of pear. Quite complex and cerebral in style. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and apricot on the entry and a touch of passion fruit. The richness is counterbalanced by a killer line of acidity and a dash of stem ginger on the finish. Just superb. -- Neal Martin

The 2016 Les Champs Libres has come together beautifully during élevage. Silky and caressing on the palate, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lemon confit, white pepper, mint, slate and crushed rocks are all laced together... The 2016 Les Champs Libres has come together beautifully during élevage. Silky and caressing on the palate, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lemon confit, white pepper, mint, slate and crushed rocks are all laced together in this super-expressive, nuanced white from the Guinaudeau family. -- Antonio Galloni
