Winemaker Notes

Château Guiraud wine is born of simplicity and proven methods. This wine is aged for approximately 18 months in oak barrels specially selected for their contribution to the wine’s elegant manner and the immensity of the its soul. The bouquet is precise, the texture is sensual, the smoothness has a somewhat mineral tone ; Château Guiraud expresses elegant purity and aromatic refinement.

Critical Acclaim

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
Ripe, botrytized fruit currently dominates this wine with its rich concentration. It is a full and liquorous wine that will age for many years. Drink from 2025.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
JS 95
James Suckling

This is very fruity and layered with botrytis spice and dried-apricot and pear flavors. Full body. Very sweet with tangy acidity. There an almost sweet-and-sour undertone to this. From organically grown grapes. Drink in 2021 and onwards.

JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck
Another rockstar Sauternes is the 2017 Château Guiraud, which has the freshness and purity of the vintage, yet ample depth and richness. Caramelized limes, citrus, and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, impeccably balanced dessert wine. Its acidity is present yet integrated, and it has a great mid-palate and a big finish, all pointing to this being a beautiful Sauternes with a long life.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
D 94
Decanter
Silky and concentrated, this is one of the successes of the appellation for me. It has lovely zest and zip, with touches of candied ginger and a fresh lift on the finish. It manages to give shade and light more than most in the vintage, but is just a little shorter than in some previous years. Very good quality, reminiscent of the 2009.
Barrel Sample
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Guiraud opens with subtle notions of crushed rocks, wild fungi and fragrant earth leading to a profound core of orange marmalade, crystalized lemon peel, dried pineapple and paraffin wax. The rich, opulent, wonderfully exotic palate delivers soft acidity and loads of spicy sparks, finishing with great length and depth.


TA 94
Tim Atkin
Fairly deep golden colour. Some youthful raw oak scents, with plenty of honeyed crystallised fruit. Inviting. Good balancing acidity and freshness, plenty of deep palate weight. long, warm, honeyed finish.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
WS 93
Wine Spectator

Mango, peach melba, gingerbread and hazelnut notes are laced with a racy streak of orange peel, giving this unctuous, forward Sauternes good energy through the finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2035.

Chateau Guiraud, France
Chateau Guiraud Winery Video

Throughout its history, Chateau Guiraud, Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855, has always been proud of its independence and has always followed its own path. This domain, with its 128 hectares situated exclusively around the village of Sauternes and its unique combination of grape varieties, is one of the rare properties in France to have created its own conservatory of vine stock varieties. 

In 1996, ever faithful to its pioneering spirit, the vineyard underwent a cultural revolution under the impulse of Xavier Planty, who was at the time manager of Chateau Guiraud, which prohibits the use of all synthetic products. In 2011 Chateau Guiraud became the first Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855 to be awarded Agriculture Biologique (AB) certification.

The philosophy at Chateau Guiraud is guided by constant questioning and their desire to let nature take its course, thus allowing the vines to achieve their full potential.
