Guiraud Sauternes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

With a great yield, we have produced a powerful wine, very aromatic, that presents a perfect alcohol-sugar-acid balance and an impressive purity of botrytis. The difference from 2009 is the cold temperature we had during August & September. That is why Château Guiraud 2010 has a spectacular balance and freshness always reinforced by 35% of Sauvignon. It presents intense aromas, hawthorn flowers, fresh fruit, with a minty note which characterizes the vintage. The feeling in mouth is magnificent, soft, but robust. The aftertaste is long. The sugar power never gives heaviness: It is the magic of natural sugars sublimated by botrytis.

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 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. -J.M. Wine Spectator.
