Richer in mouthfeel than some vintages of G de Guiraud, this has a lovely tang of lime juice and lemongrass and silky texture - enjoyable and with a twist on the finish. Drinking range: 2022 - 2027 Rating: 92 Jane Anson, Decanter (May 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Lots of sliced-lime and apricot character with a medium body and a layered finish. Creamy and attractive. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Rating: 91 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (May 2021)

Château Guiraud

Sauternes Premier Cru 1855 Given that the village has lent its name to the appellation, it seems surprising that only two châteaux in Sauternes were granted Premier Cru status in 1855. When you learn that one of those two was Château d'Yquem, it becomes less surprising. The other was Château Guiraud. The name derives from a Pierre Guiraud (or Guiraut), who purchased the estate in 1766. Today, Guiraud is owned by a consortium - Robert Peugeot, Stephan von Niepperg, Olivier Bernard and Xavier Planty. They bought the estate in 2006 from the Narby family who had already done much work renovating Guiraud over the previous 20 years. There 85ha of vineyard, given over to 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in new wood, before ageing for 2 years. A second wine is produced called Le Dauphin de Château Guiraud, as well as a dry white called G de Guiraud.
