2009 Château Guiraud, Sauternes

2009 Château Guiraud, Sauternes

Ref: BORD0991
White  |  Sweet  |  13.5% ABV

The modern history of Guiraud begins in 2006 when the property was bought by Robert Peugeot, along with Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier, Stefan von Niepperg (owner of multiple properties, mostly in the Libourne) and Xavier Planty, who had been manager of the estate for some years. Since the 2011 vintage, Guiraud has been certified organic. Xavier Planty has now sold his shares to Matthieu Gufflet, founding chairman of EPSA and hotelier. Guiraud wears the same label it has since the late 18th century.

Tasting Notes

"The 2009 Guiraud is one of the gems of Sauternes this vintage, one of the finest offerings in recent years. It has a wonderful, beautifully delineated bouquet with expressive scents of wild honey, orange pith, Seville orange marmalade and just a hint of pineapple. The palate is beautifully defined with pure botrytised fruit, supremely well balanced with a vivacious, ginger and white pepper tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding." Neal Martin

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
