" 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.

  • Chateau Guiraud Bordeaux Sauternes Grand Cru 2006


    This well-regarded Sauternes does not disappoint; the beautiful Tokaj-like color is exalted by an inviting nose of Seville marmalade, ginger, and tropical honey. On the palate is a smooth, treacle-like sweetness topped off bya gentle orange and creamsicle finish. Delicious. 91 points Read More

  • I’m so glad I found this tasting happening at my work's social clubhouse because my intended attendance at the trade tasting didn’t eventuate.
