About

Arguably Sauternes is the finest of sweet wines. Chateau Guiraud is one of only two Premier Cru Classe properties within Sauternes.

Note by Luc Planty, Director
“Petit Guiraud is a fresh and precise Sauternes, and is result of a long period of reflection on the wine style and its drinkability. As the flag-flyer for modernity and accessible pleasure, Petit Guiraud is a slice of luxury to be enjoyed every day. »

Château Guiraud obtained Organic Farming certification in early 2011 and has managed the vineyard using organic methods since 1996.  Manual picking only, by several sortings on botrytised berries.  Fermentation is partly in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and partly in barrels. The different batches are fermented until they reach equilibrium (about three weeks), the nature of which depends on their plot selection.
Ageing: In vats and barrels during about 12 months
