Guiraud

This respected Sauternes estate has had a long and colourful history since it first entered into the record books in 1766. A tumultuous period of mismanagement on the part of the original owner Pierre Guiraud was followed by an ambitious period of promotion and reputation building throughout the early 1800s. For the next 200 years the estate gained further fame and renown as a top-tier Bordeaux estate and one of the best in Sauternes. Also noteworthy is the delicious and incredible value dry white now made under the label 'G' de Guiraud.

G de Guiraud 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (87-89)

The 2016 G de Chateau Guiraud has a crisp grass clipping and limestone-scented bouquet that is nicely defined, although I would like to see more vigor. The palate is crisp on the entry with a touch of lemongrass, a pleasant edginess here with satisfying weight on the finish that just needs a touch more focus to develop before bottling.

Pretty deepness and ripeness to this with honeydew, dried-melon and lemon character. Medium body. Bright finish.

James Suckling (93)

This is a dense, waxy white with sliced dried-apple and lemon character, as well as stone and white peaches. It’s full-bodied, flavorful and rich. I like the spicy finish at the end from the semillon. Really excellent. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Guiraud 1996 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (88)

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. I have to admit that I was expecting much more from this vintage that was drinking gloriously ten years ago. For sure, the 1996 has a more composed bouquet than the 1995 with marmalade, Clementine and touches of brown sugar and chlorine emerging from the almost Barsac-like aromatic profile. The palate has a waxy texture, touches of spice and marmalade that segue into a tense, bitter lemon and bitter orange finish. Comparing the 1996 with recent vintages, it just fall short in terms of the complexity and nuance, but it remains a pleasurable Sauternes, albeit one outshone by the succeeding vintage. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013.

Guiraud 2003 (4x75cl)

Wine Advocate (90)

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. This is certainly one of the better wines from the Sauternes 2003 vintage: with fat mango and marmalade aromas on the nose that actually ebb, leaving room for attractive orange blossom scents. The palate is well-balanced with a smooth vanilla opening that demonstrates the precociousness of the vintage, while the exotic finish is nicely handled with hints of almond and peach lingering on the aftertaste. Fine. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013.

This rocks with botrytis, offering spicy almond, peach pie and dried apricot on the nose and palate. Full and very sweet, with a long finish. So much dried fruit. Oily and powerful. Some bitterness. 35 percent Sauvignon Blanc and 65 percent Sémillon. Score range: 95-98 -JS

This is developing some real power, with glazed peach and pear fruit pushed by graham and honey notes. There's lots of viscosity on the finish, but with good underlying acidity. 11,000 cases made. Score range: 92-95
