- Closure: Cork
This is the dry white wine of the First Growth Sauternes house 'Chateau Guiraud'. Made from a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon, it is matured in the used barrels of their Sauternes wine, with fruit primarily sourced from a vineyard that was planted to Sauvignon Blanc by accident around 40 years ago. (For their Sauternes, Guiraud were after a Semillon-heavy cuvee - too much Sauvignon Blanc was not considered the right balance for a sweet wine). Instead of selling off the Sauvignon or re-planting, Guiraud decided to create a special dry white and the “G” was born. This is the best example we've tasted to date from the brilliant 2009 vintage.
Brilliant pale straw colour with watery hue. The nose displays aromas of herbaceous gooseberry, lime and citrus with a light cedar overlay. Quite mouthflling the palate delivers both lively and intense favours of ripe gooseberry and some herbaceous grassy characters followed by a touch of citrus and a spicy finty back palate displaying excellent length. Dry clean crisp fnish with long aftertaste of herbaceous gooseberry, citrus and dried hay.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2010-2014)
