Château Guiraud Bordeaux-Bílá Vína Sladká-Guiraud Nehodnoceno Francie Bílé Château Guiraud 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

An unusually high proportion of Sauvignon Blanc (35%) cannot undermine the unctuous nature of this pineapple and orange scented wine.

Château Guiraud:
" La Maison Noble du Bayle ", first name of Château Guiraud was owned by de Mons de Saint Poly family. On February 1766, the 22nd Pierre Guiraud, a Bordeaux protestant merchant, buys it for 53.000 livres. When he dies in 1799, he hands it down to his son Louis who will make a great estate out of Bayle, and above all a great growth, saving it from the devaluation where it has been since 1793....

" La Maison Noble du Bayle ", first name of Château Guiraud was owned by de Mons de Saint Poly family. On February 1766, the 22nd Pierre Guiraud, a Bordeaux protestant merchant, buys it for 53.000 livres. When he dies in 1799, he hands it down to his son Louis who will make a great estate out of Bayle, and above all a great growth, saving it from the devaluation where it has been since 1793. In 1837, the estate he bequeaths to his son Louis Aman is worth 250.000 francs. With this last succession, Bayle leaves Guiraud family while its value has been multiplied by three in less than 40 years. Within 80 years and three generations, Guiraud had become a prestigious growth, recognized in 1855 as a first growth by the imperial classification. July 20th 2006, Château Guiraud was purchased by four personalities: an industrial, Robert Peugeot and three wine makers, Olivier Bernard, Stephan Von Neipperg and Xavier Planty. The meeting of these four men during a dinner in Paris was the founding event of the new team. A shared passion for wines, gastronomy, nature, hunting... this « art de vivre » made them agree very quickly on the quality and the philosophy of he growth. Guiraud is thus in good hands for some time to come. Read less

Bronze color. Sappy aromas of pear and honeysuckle. Good concentration but seems a bit hard in the mouth, despite a suggestion of almost cooked ripeness. Shows a distinct dryness in the middle. The '97 is finer and more shapely. 88(+?) points Stephen Tanzer. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Guiraud 375ml

Full of sweet aromas of apricot and orange marmalade and quince. It's concentrated and incredibly aromatic. A great Sauternes to enjoy - especially with the bottle age.
