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 for approximately 9 months with regular lees stirring during the first 3-4 months. The fruit is 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.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Nosing reveals aromas of delicate pear, green apple and lime with a fresh herb overlay and some faint grassy end notes. Light to medium weight the palate has flavours of fresh pears alongside some green apple with lightly spiced fresh herb characters, pencil shavings and some grassiness following. Clean dry finish with well balanced acidity. Aftertaste of fresh herbs, some grassy asparagus characters and light spicy pencil shavings. An elegant dry white.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
The G de Guiraud 2014 has quite a complex bouquet with lively citrus fruit intermixed with sea cave scents. There is something almost marine-like here. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, appreciable weight in the mouth with light green apple and spice notes emerging toward the finish. This is how to do dry white Sauternes.
