The name of Château Guiraud, 1st growth in the 1855 classification, dates back to 1766, when Bordeaux wine merchant Pierre Guiraud purchased the "the Noble House of Bayle". Château Guiraud, covering over a hundred hectares of vineyards, is renowned for its natural approach to noble rot (excluding chemical herbicides and insecticides, setting of insect houses, 5 km of bushes plantation, genetic diversity, conservatory vine, natural water treatment, organic farming ) and for the finesse of its sweet wines.

Bright golden yellow. Captivating spicy aromas of peach nectar, honey, ginger and menthol. Quite suave on entry, then rich and chewy in the middle, with lovely cut to its honeyed peach, melon, ripe citrus and lemongrass flavors. Thanks to lively acidity this wine conveys an impression of impeccable balance, and the high sauvignon content contributes to a fresher, lighter mouth feel. Finishes extremely long and pure, with vibrant lingering notes of gingery oak and clean botrytis. Extremely easy to drink.

Tense but the bottle I tasted was pretty cold so I had to coax it. Burnt notes underneath some floral quality. Really interesting! Chewy finish. A wine with so much character. Long. 18/20 Jancis Robinson.

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2009 Guiraud has a complex, precocious bouquet with honeysuckle and jasmine notes, hints of dried honey and white peach. It is tightly wound but very precise. The palate is pure and tense in the mouth — great precision here once again with superbly integrated oak and a lovely, seductive, very viscous botrytis-laden finish. In many ways the 2009 represents the wine that every vintage since 1983 would love to be. Drink 2018–2040+ Tasted April 2013.

Winemaker's Notes:

Fine and with lovely elegance, the 2009 Ch.Guiraud is a beautifully harmonious<br/>wine. Intense, ripe pineapple mingles with lemon and lime marmalade notes of<br/>botrytis whilst a seam of wet-stone minerality adds freshness. This, in<br/>conjunction with the crisp acidity, makes this a very sophisticated Sauternes.
