Chateau Guiraud, an 1855 Classified First Growth, is one of the most prominent estates in the southern Bordeaux region. This fine estate in the Sauternes appellation has been driven by its pioneering spirit since its creation. Since 1996, the estate has been devoted to biodiversity and in 2011 obtained an Organic Agriculture certification.
Resting on 85 hectares of sandy gravel and clay gravel, the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon vines are cultivated with the utmost care. The vineyard dedicated to the production of Chateau Guiraud's G 2021 comprises 44 hectares of vines that are 30 years old on average.
Produced in the Bordeaux Blancs Secs appellation, G by Chateau Guiraud is the estate's Second Wine.
Vinification and aging
Following the manual harvest, the perfectly ripe grapes are transferred to barrels (80%) in which Chateau Guiraud was made, followed by stainless steel tanks (20%) where they undergo an almost 3-week fermentation period. The G 2021 is then aged in barrels for 8 months with stirring of the lees to develop the aromas and preserve the purity of the fruit.
Sauvignon Blanc (45%)
The nose exudes an alluring freshness and finesse.
A lively attack precedes a dense palate which opens up to subtle citrus aromas. Throughout the tasting experience, the palate reveals a rich aromatic palette, combining notes of grapefruit zest, yellow peach flesh and small fruit from fruit trees.
For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 10 and 12 °C.
