Château Guiraud Sauternes Pre-Arrival 2009

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.

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

This rocks with botrytis, offering spicy almond, peach pie and dried apricot on the nose and palate. Full and very sweet, with a long finish. So much dried fruit. Oily and powerful. Some bitterness. 35 percent Sauvignon Blanc and 65 percent Sémillon Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Guiraud 375ml

The 2009 Guiraud is very tight on the nose, taking time to unfurl, with notes of apricot, peach, a touch of honeysuckle and quince. Good definition. The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore.

This is a bird of a different feather, with an exotic, vibrant aroma of toasted coconut, followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig, papaya, Cavaillon melon and honey. Therersquo;s stunning richness and mouthfeel, with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Very impressive. Best from 2015 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
