Petit Guiraud Sauternes, Bordeaux, 2020 Half Bottle
The wine is a blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc.
A second wine to the first growth Sauternes Chateau Guiraud. From another excellent year for Sauternes, this wine has an unctuous feel, with apricot, date, meringue and almond cream notes all rolled together and lingering through the rounded finish. Ripe, polished and long.
Petit Guiraud is a modern Sauternes made by Xavier Planty, a co-owner and Château Guiraud oenologist since 1982. It is made partly from batches that have been fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and partly from batches fermented in new French oak barrels, which provide and restore freshness and minerality to the wine. This perfect balance, which results in an extremely refined sweetness, is given extra freshness by a high proportion of Sauvignon.
Château Guiraud was also certified organic in 2011, the first Chateau in Sauternes/Barsac to achieve this certification, they have been using organic farming methods since 1996.
