This is developing some real power, with glazed peach and pear fruit pushed by graham and honey notes. Theres lots of viscosity on the finish, but with good underlying acidity. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Guiraud 3000ml

65% semillon, 35% sauvignon blanc. 100% new oak. Planted to gravel with clay. Tasted twice with slight variation. One sample was a bit more exuberant and expressive while the second was a bit more closed and tight. Both showed the same great tension ... Geoffrey Binder.

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.


Winemaker's Notes:

"This is developing some real power, with glazed peach and pear fruit pushed by graham and honey notes. There's lots of viscosity on the finish, but with good underlying acidity...92-95" WS 4/11 "The 2010 Chateau Guiraud has fine purity and minerality on the nose, with touches of passion fruit and dried apricot, later quince joining the fray. The palate is very well-balanced with a lively entry of apricot, quince and a touch of hazelnut. The middle and finish demonstrate fine tension and a lot of freshness...90-93" Neal Martin of the Wine Advocate 5/11
