Le G de Guiraud, Bordeaux Blanc sec, 2019.
Château Guiraud stands out as one of the sure values of the 1st Grands Crus Classés Sauternes. Indeed, the property, owned by the Peugeot family, Xavier Planty, Stefan von Neipperg (Ch Canon La Gaffeliere) and Olivier Bernard (Domaine de Chevalier), collects commercial successes and awards from the press. The recent Bio AB Certification received in 2011 completes this fantastic dynamic. The “G” embodies the gateway to the Château Guiraud brand, as Luc Planty, technical director of the property, describes it.
Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
First, a bouquet of a great finesse with enormous aromatic intensity, rich and complex. Then, an explosion of flavours on the palate, with notes of tangerine and grapefruit peel. This is followed by a long finish with a touch of red fruit berries, red currant. Overall, this is a wine with a lot of crisp.
