Château Haut-Bergey Blanc, Pessac Leognan, FR, 2018

In the fifteenth century, the lord of La Louviere and Lord Olivier proceeded to land consolidation. Thus

was born "The Noble House of Pontey, today Chateau Haut-Bergey. In 1700, Sir John Francis Cresse,

advisor to the parliament of Bordeaux makes his home. In 1772, the estate had 100 hectares of vines. A

century later, the vineyard was abandoned and rebuilt the castle in 1850 is a property approval. It was

not until the second half of this century, 1957 specifically so that gradually the area regains its past wine.

In March 1991, Sylviane Garcin Cathiard acquired Chateau Haut-Bergey.

Tasting Notes: Honeysuckle, vanilla, bright yellow tropical fruit and citrus notes are in the nose and on

the palate. This is going to best if consumed in its first few years of life for all that sweet, ripe, bright

citrus.

 

Château Cap Saint George, St. Emillion, FR, 2016

The unique style of Château Cap Saint George can be defined by respect for an exceptional terroir, by

precise, meticulous vinification and by care to preserve the fruit and all its complexity. Each vintage is a

chance to reaffirm an investment in purity and ‘Grand Cru’ techniques. We never chase after excess but

rather clearly defined flavours and textures that reveal finesse, with subtle use of oak that is integrated

and never dominates the fruit. Cap Saint George is a fine wine that represents its terroir, sculpted by the

techniques and knowledge of Jean Philippe Janoueix.

Tasting Notes: Deep red, with hints of purple. Lush and fruit driven nose. Dark plums, blackurrant liquer

and a touch of vanilla. Plush mouth feel with sweet dark fruits and gentle, even tannin. Nice, relatively

ripe expression.

 

Sauternes, Château Guiraud, 2011 (375 ml)

On July 20, 2006, the vineyard was taken over by four renowned personalities who chose by affinity

during a dinner. They share the same taste for wine, nature and gastronomy. Together, they dare to be

passionate, and obtain official Organic Farming certification in 2011. This joint ownership marks the

advent of hard work provided for over 35 years by the property's teams. History on this favorite terroir,

Sauvignon Blanc represents 35% of the grape varieties of the Château Guiraud vineyard. This very

high-class grape variety is selected from the oldest strains of the property's conservatory. It is replanted

and vinified separately, thus participating in the signature of Château Guiraud, 1st Grand Cru Classé in

1855 in Sauternes.

Tasting Notes: Deep aromas of lime, peach, quince, minerals, menthol and saffron are complicated by

tangy botrytis tones. Ripe, creamy flavors of peach, lime and lemon verbena show noteworthy

sweetness and power, with harmonious acidity providing lift. This very rich, textured wine coats the

palate with tropical fruit and mineral flavors that linger impressively on the back end, enlivened by a

brisk citrus element.
