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.
86-88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 1998
Pale yellow-gold color. Sweet peach, apricot syrup and oak char on the nose. Bright, intensely flavored and spicy in the mouth; not especially viscous or sweet but offers an intriguingly tactile texture and enticing finishing notes of toast and vanilla. Shows little of the herbal character that, for this taster at least, has limited the appeal of some older vintages of this wine, but I'd like to have seen more evidence of botrytis.
