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 is very sweet and rich on the nose, with toffee, honey and spices. Full-bodied, and thick honey. Spice, dried apricot and syrup flavors. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Big botrytis bomb. Love it. Best after 2010. 8,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Guiraud 750ml

Full yellow-gold. Musky aromas of exotic apricot liqueur, baking spices, toffee and smoke. Supersweet and unctuous, but with its glyceral texture cut by bright acids. The exotic apricot flavor is nicely complemented by coconut, vanilla and caramel. Finishes very long and juicy. Offers a very successful combination of thickness and firm acid edge.

Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. Tasting the 03 Guiraud blind my tasting note is consistent with the bottle tasted later that day although here there was just a slight adhesive scent that perhaps knocked a point from my score. Otherwise this is a delicious Guiraud from Xavier Plantey albeit a vintage surpassed in more recent releases. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
