CHATEAU LAMOTHE GUIGNARD
Château Lamothe Guignard is located on one of the highest hills in Sauternes. The terroir looks over the Ciron river valley and it is for this reason, that until 1814, it was known as Lamothe d’Assault.
The estate was acquired by Philippe and Jacques Guignard in 1981, hence the name change. The Sauternes vineyards of Lamothe Guignard are planted on two unique terroirs. On the plateau, there is gravel. The remainder is made from gravel and chalk. Both areas are planted with 90% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle.
Somewhat undervalued, this is an estate to keep an eye on as the wines show great promise, with citrus notes and rich honey character.
