Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow and tinged with green flashes. On the nose, in a flourish of freshness the wine melds complex citrus fruit notes expressing all the purity of Sauvignon blanc on limestone. Chiselled, chalky and mineral on the palate, the wine lingers in a long, balanced, poised finish. A gastronomic, secret treasure.

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

A creamy white with lots of dried lemon, apple and a stone undertone. It’s medium-bodied with a lovely, solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. More subtle than the 2019 and the 2018. Barrel Sample: 92-93

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
The wine brings out some attractive peach flavors as well as the more tangy citrus characters. Touches of spice indicate wood aging that will soften the wine as it develops.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
D 90
Decanter
A little underpowered compared to some years of La Garde, this remains a great choice for Pessac polish and reasonable prices, and there is an array of stone fruit nectarine and peach flavors with white pepper edging. Would benefit from a clear tick upwards on the finish.
Barrel Sample: 90

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.
