Spicy and intense with dried-apple, peach and some stone character. It’s medium-bodied and sweet, yet fresh and vivid. - James Suckling The Premier Grand Cru Classé Guiraud takes its name from the Bordeaux négociant Pierre Guiraud, who purchased the Sauternes property back in 1766. Owned these days by a consortium of interested parties, Guiraud is innovatively sustainable in its approach, and is the only First Growth from the 1855 Classification to be certified organic.There are 100 hectares under vine, the vineyards planted in 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. The Chateau Guiraud 2020 seduces with its tension and purity. A silky touch combines with great finesse to produce fresh and spicy aromas, as well as quince and apricot notes. Pairs well with a beef fillet and venison.
