The name of Chateau Guiraud, 1st growth in the 1855 classification, dates back to 1766, when Bordeaux wine merchant Pierre Guiraud purchased the "the Noble House of Bayle". Château Guiraud, covering over a hundred hectares of vineyards, is renowned for its natural approach to noble rot (excluding chemical herbicides and insecticides, setting of insect houses, 5 km of bushes plantation, genetic diversity, conservatory vine, natural water treatment, organic farming) and for the finesse of its sweet wines from Sauternes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2009 Guiraud has a complex, precocious bouquet with honeysuckle and jasmine notes, hints of dried honey and white peach. It is tightly wound but very precise. The palate is pure and tense in the mouth - great precision here once again with superbly integrated oak and a lovely, seductive, very viscous botrytis-laden finish. In many ways the 2009 represents the wine that every vintage since 1983 would love to be. Drink 2018-2040+ Tasted April 2013.
