2017 G de Guiraud, Bordeaux Blanc Sec

The 2017 G de Guiraud is packed with energy, with lime and peach notes bursting from the glass and zipping over the palate. The satisfying creaminess and hints of smoke and spice make for a wine you'll want to come back to again and again, and the impressive concentration hints at a long life ahead.

TASTING NOTES

Complex, cedary, herbal nose. Then more savoury oak flavours on the palate. Tight, fresh and with lovely precision on the palate and excellent length.

17/20

Pretty deepness and ripeness to this with honeydew, dried-melon and lemon character. Medium body. Bright finish.
