Château Guiraud-Cheval-Blanc Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Bourg 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Alcohol Percentage: null %

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

Made of Merlot, Cab Sauv, Malbec and Cab Franc. It feels soft and velvety in the mouth. It's an easy drinking wine. Without the heavy tannins, you can pair it with light meats and even some fish dishes. Delicious!

Full golden-yellow. Orange oil, clove, ginger, mint and minerals on the perfumed, vibrant noise. Superrich but juicy and vibrant, with an exotic hint to the fresh apricot and peach flavors. This boasts an exhilarating sugar/acid balance and finishes ... Stephen Tanzer. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Guiraud 750ml
