Château Guiraud

The winery is located in Sauterne in the eponymous area in Graves (Bordeaux). North of it closes the famous Château d'Yquem at. The estate was known in the dark beginnings as "La Maison Noble du Blaye". The first owners mentioned the family Essenault, from whose possessions also the Château d'Issan emerged. In 1766, the estate was acquired by the eponymous Bordeaux wine merchant Pierre Guiraud. After a rich history, it was bought in 1981 by the Canadian Hamilton Narby, who invested heavily in the building and the winery. Finally, in 2006, a group of investors led by the Peugeot family acquired the majority stake. Plant manager is now Xavier Planty. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it was classified as "Premier Cru Classé". The vineyards cover over 100 hectares of vineyards, planted with the varieties Sémillon (65%) and Sauvignon Blanc (35%). The extremely long-lived noble sweet wine is aged 18 to 24 months in 100% new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Le Dauphin de Chartreuse de Coutet". A dry fermented wine is marketed under the name "G - Château Guiraud".
