Winemaker Notes

In 2018, we have secured enough acidity, in a “solar” vintage, to combine freshness with aromatic complexity, for again a marvelous wine, typical of Pessac Leognan.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

Beautiful purity of lemon and green-mango aromas with light notes of fresh herbs and wet stones. The palate delivers a very attractively fresh and lively array of lemon flavors and a long, smooth and layered texture. Super fresh and taut finish. There’s lovely tension here. A blend of 90% sauvignon blanc and 10% semillon. Drink or hold.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Bright and lively, with lemon and gooseberry gelée notes forming the core, while thyme, tarragon and sel gris accents race along the edge. A flash of salted butter runs underneath on the finish, lending a flattering hint. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2023.

Decanter
There's no more Sauvignon Gris at La Garde, as they wanted to focus on a more mineral feel in the wine. Personally I liked the Sauvignon Gris, but I can definitely see that this is a beautifully sculpted and enjoyable white in 2018. It has clearly defined citrus and white flower aromatics, something that's not always the case in this vintage. White pear and citrus notes appear on the rich palate, with some gentle spice. Excellent.

Chateau La Garde, France
Chateau La Garde  Winery Image

The origins of the Chateau date back to the 18th century, when Domaine de “Lagarde” already featured on the “carte de Cassini”, the first general map of France drawn by the Cassini family in 1756. The picturesque Charterhouse, built in 1732, was at that time surrounded by valleys and woods. The “Bourdieu de Lagarde” was then passed down through the Blanchard family, until its purchase in 1877 by the Lacoste family, who were negociants in Bordeaux. Vines were thus cultivated on this magnificent stony terroir and the winery was built in 1881. After the First World War, Louis Eschenauer, a well-known negociant on the Place de Bordeaux at the “Chartrons”, was looking for good quality vines in the Bordeaux area. He became interested in the vineyards around the summit of Domaine de La Garde, which he subsequently bought in 1920, and in so doing became the leading proponent of the wines produced in the Martillac area, where he also owned Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. Sometimes referred to as Domaine de La Garde, Clos de La Garde, then Chateau La Garde, even at this time a crest featured on the estate’s wine labels inspired by weapons thought to be from the region of Aquitaine during the 100 years’ war, displaying the leopard with a lion’s head.
