Societe Civile du Chateau Lafleur - Les Champs Libres 2020
Founded in 2013 by Julie and Baptiste Guinaudeau, Les Champs Libres is a reflection of the Lafleur philosophy through a white wine. Originating from the clay-limestone soils on the plateau of Louima, it is a great match with the genetics of Sauvignon Blanc. Manual harvest is performed with double sorting at the vineyard. This new cru is the fruit of extensive experience combined with precise work on the white parcels at Grand Village. In the past ten years the Guinaudeaus applied an extremely qualitative approach both in the vineyard and the cellar, investing energy and time in the elaboration of these white wines. Eventually, in 2013, they decided to blend the best barrels coming from three key Sauvignon parcels: À Louima, Les Pêchers and Les Acacias, to create Les Champs Libres 2013. And so, Les Champs Libres came to life.
Les Champs Libres reveals a floral and complex nose. On the palate, the wine is rich and mineral, showing great freshness, balance and a remarkably long finish.
