G de Guiraud is a dry white made by Château Guiraud, a 1er Cru Classé property in Sauternes situated next door to Château Yquem. The 1er Cru Classé estates are the best of the best. While Château Guiraud may be best known for its sweet whites, the same meticulous care and attention goes into making this modern dry white.
Yields at Guiraud are kept extremely low, even by Sauternes standards (which are notoriously low).Lower yields lead to riper, more concentrated grapes which result in higher quality wines
This 2017 vintage is a blend of Sauvignon blanc (50%) and Sémillon (50%) with only perfectly ripe, healthy grapes selected carefully by hand across three pickings
The 2017 is certified organic and the estate has been certified organic since 2011
Tasting note:A rich, fruit driven wine with fresh aromas of stone fruit, lime and gooseberry. The palate is well balanced with pure and elegant acidity alongside a richness of texture from 7 months in barrel. Perfect with fish and seafood dishes.
