WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"Coming from a blend of Sauvignon and Semillon, all farmed organically, the 2019 G de Guiraud is a stunning white Bordeaux. Textured and intense, with lots of energy, it’s a white that will delight from day one, for a few years to come."
"Throughout its history, Chateau Guiraud has always maintained its INDEPENDANCE and traced its own route. The prevailing PIONNEER spirit led the property to create its own conservatory of grape varieties. In 1996, the team undertook a veritable cultural revolution by embarking on the study of BIODIVERSITY, and in 2011 Chateau Guiraud became the First Grand Cru Classé in 1855 to be awarded Organic Agriculture certification." Xavier Planty, Director and co-owner of Chateau Guiraud
