The Château La Garde white wines reveal surprising character compared to other white wines from Pessac-Léognan. They develop expressive and distinctive aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris character, the predominant white varietals cultivated at the Château, and enhanced with the richness of Semillon.
The 2016 vintage once again reveals the originality of the terroir producing this Chateau La Garde white. Light and long on the bouquet, where dominant Sauvignon Blanc on limestone offer minerality and intense citrus fruit aromas, together with a hint of smoke. The mineral character is echoed on the palate, where great poise and length counterweight the great aromatic intensity, freshness and rich character from the supporting, entirely complementary Semillon grown on the gravel plateau. Freshness defines the 2016 vintage of this harmonious, fragrant wine.
