Good depth of expression to the clear, fresh citrus fruit, although it's not fully balanced on the finish. Still, you can feel the grip and your mouth waters with the touch of salinity at close of play. 85% Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, and 15% Sémillon, from just 2ha of vines fermented in barrels followed by 10 months in 15% new oak.

Decanter 89 Points

Other Notes
"We bought Château la Garde in June 1990, totally seduced by the exceptional quality of the terroir, which is quite possibly one of the finest gravel outcrops in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Motivated by this ambitious project, worthy of this magnificent terroir, considerable time and finances have been invested and have been rewarded with the increasingly frequent production of delicate, elegant and appealing fine Pessac-Léognan wines." Patrick Jestin
