Chateau Guiraud Le G de Guiraud Bordeaux Blanc 2019
PRODUCER: A pioneer of sustainable and organic practices in the world of the 1st Grands Crus (the property decided this in 1996), Château Guiraud stands out as one of the sure values of the 1st Grands Crus Classés Sauternes. Indeed, the property, owned by the Peugeot family, Xavier Planty, Stefan von Neipperg (Ch Canon La Gaffeliere) and Olivier Bernard (Domaine de Chevalier), collects commercial successes and awards from the press. The recent Bio AB Certification received in 2011 completes this fantastic dynamic. The “G” embodies the gateway to the Château Guiraud brand, as Luc Planty, technical director of the property, describes it.
WINEMAKING: Fermenting: 80% in oak barrels that have been used for the Sauternes great growth; 20% in stainless steel tank. Fermentation lasts for 3 weeks. Malolactic: 5% Ageing
TASTING NOTES: A bouquet of a great finesse with enormous aromatic intensity, rich and complex. An explosion of falvours on the palate, with notes of tangerine and grapefruit peel. There is a long finish with a touch of red fruit berries, red currant contributed by the sauvignon blanc from our wine-stock conservatory. This a crisp, clean wine of great refinement
