92pts James Suckling
A creamy, fruity Sauternes with apple and pear-skin aromas and flavors, as well as hints of honey. Medium-bodied, fresh and bright with a clean finish. Second wine of Château Guiraud. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
Following vinification with the property’s Grand Cru, the second wine is a blend of wines from several batches, selected for their style. Aged in oak barrels or in stainless steel vats, the main characteristic of the second wine is its freshness and the fact that it can be enjoyed relatively young. Petit Guiraud thus makes the pleasure of drinking this modern wine available to all. With bold flavors of fresh fruit, like grapefruit, passionfruit and pineapple, this sauterne is light, feminine and floral.
It pairs best with desserts and a cheese plate, notably blue cheese.
