2018 G de Guiraud, Bordeaux Blanc Sec

The 2018 G de Guiraud is reduced in quantity, due to a hailstorm on the night of the World Cup Final. However, what remains is impressive, benefitting from an otherwise outstanding growing season. It’s a wine you’ll want to stock up on.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 G de Guiraud gives up scents of poached pears, lemon marmalade and fresh pineapple with touches of lime zest and white pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of zip in its step with some herb and chalk layers emerging on the finish.
