Château Guiraud Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh and fruity nose of average intensity of aromatics. For once, it is not the spiciest wine. Upon swirling, it appears complex and smoky. Beautiful on entry. The wine develops melting, very aromatic with flavors reminding of citrus zest and finely bitter characteristics. It remains fat until the end where it finishes rich, powerful and long, mixing expressions of botrytis and passerillage. A success of the vintage. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com<br/><br/>

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

Cloudy golden color with great viscosity. This is a real beauty as well. Nice aromas of peach ripe golden apple marshmallow and honey. The mid-palate is fat and rich with an almost oily character. Has some spice towards the end as well (clove mostly) This 2007 Sauternes has a lot going on and is certainly one of the stars this vintage has to offer. Alex Lallos.
