Château Guiraud, traditionally known for its sweet First Growth (1er Grand Cru Classé) Sauternes, has been investing in making a biodynamic dry white wine. One has to taste this true Bordeaux dry white to realize the value per price that is hardly matched by its New World competition.
"Still a bit tight, with a racy lemon pith frame around the core of white peach, tangerine, chamomile and straw flavors. Shows weight and zip." - James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (6/30/2017), Ratings: 90-93
"The 2016 G de Chateau Guiraud has a crisp grass clipping and limestone-scented bouquet that is nicely defined, although I would like to see more vigor. The palate is crisp on the entry with a touch of lemongrass, a pleasant edginess here with satisfying weight on the finish that just needs a touch more focus to develop before bottling." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/28/2017, Issue 230), Ratings: 87-89
