(93 - 95) The Les Champs Libres 2018 Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre sélection massale clones, harvested September 3, 5 and 6. Wow—it has an amazing perfume of honeysuckle, orange blossoms and white peaches with chalk dust, paraffin wax, lemon curd, lime cordial and candied peel nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate is super intense and finely crafted with a racy backbone cutting through the citrus, saline and stone fruit layers, finishing long and mineral laced. Seriously impressive, this is a wine without peers in Bordeaux. 5,000-6,000 bottles are anticipated to be made this year.-LPB

This is brilliant, so flavourful with so much persistency and fully embraces the slate texture. I always love this wine, and it stands out even more than usual in this vintage because so many whites have missed this... This is brilliant, so flavourful with so much persistency and fully embraces the slate texture. I always love this wine, and it stands out even more than usual in this vintage because so many whites have missed this gathering of pace and clear minerality. Massal selection from Sancerre estates.

(93-95) From the team at Lafleur and getting a few “wows” in the notes, the 2018 Les Champs Libres Blanc is flat-out brilliant, offering notes of lemon curd, salty sea breeze, crushed rocks, and green herbs. Tasting like a hypothetical mix of a top Loire and Bordeaux Blanc, it’s medium to full-bodied, with bright, racy acidity, fabulous tension, and a great finish. It’s a gorgeous white as well as one of the gems in the vintage. This cuvée is all Sauvignon Blanc from a pure limestone vineyard located near Fronsac.

(93-94) This is really bright and energetic for the vintage with lively acidity and a vibrant finish. Brilliance to it. Wonderfully bitter lemon at the finish.

Always produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the wine shows off its green apple, pomelo, flowers and lime essence with ease. Fresh and fruity, with lift and the bite of a Meyer lemon in the finish, this is quite nice this...
