    Product description

    Château Guiraud is one of the few properties to be located within the village of Sauternes itself (the only other being its illustrious neighbour Château Yquem). With only 100,000 bottles produced in good year, Guiraud is  characterized by its balance of sweetness and zest of acidity.

    A fabulous classic style Sauternes drinking absolutely wonderfully. Aromas of apricots, honey and peaches with a nutty edge. Rich on the palate and balanced by a streak of fresh acidity. A superb price for this outstanding wine.

    French sweet/pudding white wine from Sauternes in Bordeaux France, made with Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château Guiraud

    Château Guiraud is one of the few properties to be located within the village of Sauternes itself (the only other being its illustrious neighbour Château Yquem). Purchased by Pierre Guiraud in 1766, it is today owned by Robert Peugeolt and 3 winemakers, Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier, Stephan Von Neipperg of Château Canon La Gaffelière and Xavier Planty.

    Vineyard & Winemaking

    Château Guiraud extends over 128 hectares in Sauternes and planted with 65% of Semillon and 35% of Sauvignon with an average of 35-40 years old vines. Bordeaux’s most famous dessert wine region is situated 20 miles south of the city, spanning both banks of the Garone and Ciron Rivers. These waterways provide the perfect misty morning microclimate to encourage the growth of Botrytis Cinerea (also known as Noble Rot). The rot attacks the grape evaporating the water and concentrating the sugar levels. Sauternes are some of the longest lived wines, with premium examples from exceptional vintages having the potential to last 100 years or more (in perfect conditions). They are characterized by their balance of sweetness and zest of acidity with typical notes of apricots, honey and peaches with a nutty edge.

    Wine Produced

    Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Guiraud (grand vin) with only 100 000 bt produced in good year and Petit Guiraud (second wine). They also produce a dry white wine, G de Château Guiraud.
