Château Guillaume Blanc

Château Guillaume Blanc

In the 16th century, there was substantial commerce in wine in the fortified town of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, located at the gateway to Périgord. One of the town's Jurats (notables) was named "Guillaume Blanc" and lived on this estate.
Following its purchase by GRM in 1992, the property was renovated, with a complete reorganization of the winery facilities, and a set of temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
The gravelly soil on this 65 hectare property is planted with Cabernet, while the clay-limestone slopes are planted with Merlot. Vinification is meticulous, with successive sortings of the harvests. The agricultural practices used at the property are respectful of the environment and have sustainable agriculture (Agriculture Raisonné).

After being harmoniously blended, this Bordeaux Supérieur is matured in barrels for eight months. The wines are matured in a cellar that can hold 600 barrels (one third renewed each year). The care taken in the production of its wines has resulted in Château Guillaume Blanc receiving awards for many of its vintages.
