2014 Domaine de Saint-Guirons, Pauillac
Domaine de Saint-Guirons is a small vineyard in the heart of Pauillac owned and run by Xavier Borie’s famous ‘5eme Grand Crus Classé’ Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The 2014 vintage is now approaching full maturity with rich concentrated fruit and that unique minerality that Pauillac is famous for. Pauillac minerality.
Made by Xavier and his wine-making team, this excellent claret is very modestly priced by comparison to its illustrious neighbours. It is a Pauillac bargain and a treat.
Garnet and ruby red in colour. The nose has blackberries with tobacco and cedar notes. The palate has wonderful rich fruit combined with leathery, chocolate flavours. A smooth and round wine drinking very well now.
