Wine Region: Bordeaux, France
Grape: 100% Sauvignon blanc.
Tasting notes: " Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. This is certainly one of the better wines from the Sauternes 2003 vintage: with fat mango and marmalade aromas on the nose that actually ebb, leaving room for attractive orange blossom scents. The palate is well-balanced with a smooth vanilla opening that demonstrates the precociousness of the vintage, while the exotic finish is nicely handled with hints of almond and peach lingering on the aftertaste." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90/100.
About the winery: "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
