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

Beautiful gold in the glass. Candied apricot, honey and candied citrus peel on the nose. Richly flavored with sweet honey and candied apricot and peach. Rich and pretty. Feels decadent but possesses wonderful acid balance. 4/14/12

Full golden-yellow. Orange oil, clove, ginger, mint and minerals on the perfumed, vibrant nose. 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 with terrific life and grip. Lafaurie-Peyraguey.

A medium gold color is accompanied by notes of caramelized oranges, citrus, honeysuckle, creme brulee, and smoke. Full-bodied and opulent, with tremendous intensity, good acidity, and a persistent finish that lasts nearly a minute, this large-scaled, thick, heady Guiraud is one of the finest examples from this estate that I have ever tasted. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not to drink it now. Best after 2014.

Typical of the huge power of Guiraud, this is one of the richest Sauternes in 2005. The wine is rich and intense, the dry edge of botrytis just dominating the sweetness. Flavors of honey, almonds and peaches give the wine extra complexity Wine Enthusiast. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Guiraud 375ml
