Description

*** 90 Points - Outstanding - Robert Parker ***

The 1998 Chateau Guiraud has an attractive nose of melted candle wax, brown sugar and marmalade that blossoms in the glass. The palate is clean and pure on the entry with crisp acidity. It is a more feminine, lithe Sauternes compared to the 1997 with a pretty peach and dried apricot finish interlaced with spice. Fine. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013. eRobert Parker.

Château Guiraud is a renowned wine estate located in the Sauternes appellation of Bordeaux, France. With a history dating back to the 18th century, the estate has established itself as a leading producer of prestigious sweet wines. Spanning approximately 100 hectares, the vineyard benefits from a unique terroir characterized by gravelly, sandy, and limestone soils, ideal for cultivating Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes affected by noble rot. Classified as a Premier Cru Classé in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, Château Guiraud is celebrated for its exquisite botrytized wines, which showcase a perfect balance of sweetness, acidity, and complexity. Guided by sustainable viticulture practices and traditional winemaking techniques, Château Guiraud continues to produce wines of exceptional quality, revered for their richness, depth, and ability to age gracefully, solidifying its status as a cornerstone of the Sauternes region.
