Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012 (375ml) Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012 (375ml)

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

Ch Guiraud Le G De Bordeaux Blanc Sec 2015 Product #33139 (In Stock)
Ch Guiraud Le G De Bordeaux Blanc Sec 2015 Ch Guiraud Le G De Bordeaux Blanc Sec 2015

Like nearby Ch d'Yquem, Ch Guiraud makes dry wine as well as sweet from it's Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon vineyards in Sauturnes. In 2015, it's a big, rich, wine with generous tangerine and lemon pulp fruit and just a touch of woolly complexity.

"White Bordeaux wines are typically based on sauvignon blanc, but they don’t resemble the racy style we identify with New Zealand or the firm, minerally wines of the Loire Valley. That’s usually because of the addition of semillon in the blend, to add an oily richness and expansive texture. Bordeaux blanc ranges from cheap, inexpensive and inconsistent wines for quick drinking to rather pricey, age-worthy collectibles. The G by Chateau Guiraud falls in between, offering great quality at a moderate price. It has considerable heft, so drink it with dinner, not as a cocktail. Guiraud is a top producer of Sauternes, the famous sweet wine of the region. The G shows it can do dry just as well."  The Washington Post ***/*** (Exceptional)

"Nectarine, pithy fruit on the nose. The palate is crisp and fresh with plenty of citrus fruit, dried pineapple and green apples on the energetic finish. Give this a year once in bottle and you'll have a great G de Guiraud. Drink 2017-2025"Wine Advocate 89-91 points

Ch Guiraud Sauternes 2008 375ml Product #31487 (In Stock)
Ch Guiraud Sauternes 2008 375ml Ch Guiraud Sauternes 2008 375ml

Nicely mature and very rich with a long, long, finish.

"Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. It is clear that the aromatics on the 2008 are a little simpler and more straightforward than the 2007 with honeysuckle, jasmine and mango scents emerging with time. The palate is ripe and precise on the entry with well-integrated oak that is in sync with the lemon curd and apricot fruit. There is a lovely sweetness on the finish with a hint of spice lingering in the mouth. As I wrote last year – sublime."Wine Advocate 93 points

"A ripe, flashy style, with layers of creamed peach, Jonagold apple, candied citrus peel and dried apricot, all stitched with lovely acacia honey and floral notes. This has power and purity. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 92 points
