Château Guitignan

Cru Bourgeois, Haute Valeur environnementale

Moulis AOC – Bordeaux – France

A Cru Bourgeois wine since 1932, Guitignan dates back to the 17th century, when it already belonged to the Lestage family. To put it simply, it benefits from the most renowned soils of the AOC Moulis, which are located between the gravelly rounded hilltops of Brillette and of Grand Poujeaux.

What characterizes it is a perfect balance between a powerful body and delicate aromas.

Certified HVE3 as of the 2019 vintage.
