The Sémillon brings another level of complexity, and this offers a terrific nose of honeyed lime, Meyer lemon, and grapefruit notes all pinned by a beautiful underlying earthy mineral-component that emerges with more time in the glass. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it has a bright spine of acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. Ranking the top whites in the region, it's going to drink well for 10-15 years.

But it is the fresh, vibrant palate, with its crisp bite of yellow citrus accompanied by fresh topical accents that really makes this work. The wine was made from 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Chateau+Grand+Village

A little youthfully mute to begin, with swirling it offers delicate scents of lime leaves, chalk dust and wet pebbles over a core of lemongrass, fresh grapefruit and green apples. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly styled with savory accents to the intense citrus flavors and harmonious acidity, finishing long and chalky. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Green-apple, dried citrus-peel, lime, fennel and leek aromas. It’s medium-bodied with bright, tangy acidity and a waxy texture. Vibrant at the end. Drink now.

I could easily have put the big sibling Les Champs Libre in this spot, as it is one of my favourite dry whites from Bordeaux, but it is worth checking out the less expensive Grand Village. The same family attention to detail (as you would expect from the Guinaudeau family of Château Lafleur), and pretty much the perfect moment to drink. From vines on clay-limestone soils just to the northwest of Fronsac, grown at the home of Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau, with a significant part of the Sauvignon Blanc vines coming from Sancerre-sourced, massal-selected plants. 20% new oak.

This has touches of reduction, which perhaps emphasises the serious nature to this white, with stone fruits combined with a well-drawn out tension through the palate and a sapidity through the finish.
