Château Guiraud White 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

" 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

...Knockout nose combines pineapple yellow plum marzipan roasted herbs and resiny oak. Superconcentrated chewy and stylish with flavors of honey pineapple marzipan vanilla toffee and spicy oak framed and intensified by bright acidity. Impressively dense... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2001 Guiraud is armed with an intense vigorous bouquet with scents of marmalade lanolin brown sugar and peach that blossom in the glass the latter becoming exaggerated with continued aeration. The palate is well-balanced with citrus-fresh apricot and orange zest on the entry. It is precise and vigorous with dried mango emerging toward the tightly wound finish that suggests the
