Chateau Guiraud, Sauternes, FR, 2020 (Futures) 6-pack

$155.70 Excl. tax

JS: 95 - Spicy and intense with wonderful dried-apple, peach and some stone character. It’s medium-bodied and sweet, yet fresh and vivid.

JS: 95 - Château Guiraud is a large Sauternes property that is the only 1er Cru Classé, with the exception of its illustrious

neighbour Château d`Yquem, that is located within the commune of Sauternes itself.

Guiraud was owned for a short period by the Maxwell family, who invested heavily in the property, although the wines

remained fairly pedestrian. In 1981 it was acquired by a Canadian, Hamilton Narby, and he has transformed Guiraud

into one of the very finest Sauternes properties.

Guiraud's 85 hectares of vineyards are located on one of the hills above the village of Sauternes. They are planted

with 65% Sémillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are harvested in "tries" and the juice is then fermented i

n oak barrels. The wine is then aged in oak casks (50% new) for 2 years.
