Tasting Notes

"Lots of honey richness on the nose and notes of marmalade. The most evidently marked by botrytis of all sweet wines in this line up. Powerful, long and satisfying. Lovely acidity on the finish." Xenia Irwin MW, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

"This is really rocking! The levels of acidity give this all the lift you need, so that the sweet, honey drenched, tropical fruit and vanilla can really shine." Wine Cellar Insider

Château Guiraud

Château Guiraud is one of the largest large Sauternes property and is the only 1er Cru Classé, with the exception of its illustrious neighbour Château d`Yquem that is located within the commune of Sauternes itself. Modern fortunes changed from a moderate rating sweet wine when it was purchased in 1981 by a Canadian, Hamilton Narby, who transformed Guiraud into one of the very finest Sauternes properties with investment and careful nurturing.

The next major change came about in 2006 when Guiraud was purchased by a partnership formed by Robert Peugeot and three Bordeaux winemakers, Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier, Stephan Von Neipperg who owns numerous St. Emilion properties (including Canon La Gaffeliere, La Mondotte and Clos L'Oratoire) and Xavier Planty.

In 2010, Chateau Guiraud registered the term BioViticultureas part of their focus on organic viticulture as well as a more global approach with sustainable practices. Guiraud earned full Agence Bio (AB) organic certification starting with the 2011 vintage. The 85 hectares of vineyards are located on one of the hills above the village of Sauternes. They are planted with 65% Sémillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc.
