Over its long history Lamothe Guignard has changed hands regularly and even seen its vineyards split between different owners. It lies on one of the highest hills in Sauternes and has two distinct terroirs: the classic local gravel and a mix of gravel and chalk. It was classified Deuxième Cru Classé in 1855.

Fabuous nose of camomile and pear fruit. I get a real flavour of ginger up front. This is a really spicy example. Long and busy and nicely fresh. Nutty. The finish finally comes completely clean, leaving the mouth dry. Best LG for some years. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
