About Chateau Guiraud

This chateau, recently purchased by a consortium led by auto magnate Robert Peugeot, produces a distinctly restrained style of Sauternes that emphasizes the pungent, firmer quality of Sauvignon Blanc over the more exotic tones of Sémillon.

Expert Reviews

93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2004

($48-$60) Medium golden yellow color. 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, saline wine with a very firm spine and considerable aging potential.

Remarkable Noble Rot.

Plum, honey, orange, toffee, butterscotch, and oak. Thick, some acid, and lots of botrytis. Lots of ageing potential and a long finish.

Nose combines Pineapple, butterscoth and slight roasted almond. Very concentrated wine with flavors of pineapple, caramel and butterscotch.Just the right level of bracing acidity for this wine. Excellent, smooth and very long finish. A standout from the vintage.
