Notes

50% Sémillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc

G of Château Guiraud is a dry white wine made from grapes harvested at full maturity. It is aged for approximately 7 months in the oak barrels that produced the previous year's Grand Cru. It reveals richness of expression and an assertive personality. The blend of 50% sauvignon and 50% semillon makes it a remarkable wine whose potential will challenge the palate of wine-lovers and confirmed wine-tasters alike.

Tasting notes:
'The 2015 G de Château Guiraud offers nectarine, pithy fruit on the nose that needs just a little more delineation. The palate is crisp and fresh with plenty of citrus fruit, dried pineapple and green apples on the energetic finish. Give this a year once in bottle and you'll have a great G de Guiraud.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 89-91/100

'Lovely yellow apple, mirabelle plum and apricot notes burst forth, quickly harnessed by acacia and verbena threads, which provide focus and cut through the flattering finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2020.' – Wine Spectator, 91/100

'G of Château Guiraud is a dry white wine of Bordeaux Appellation. Its wine reveals a rich expression and a confident personality. It is made from ripe grapes. Its high level of sauvignon blanc firms the style of the property. The G represents the front door into the Château Guiraud brand.' – Winemaker

Viticulture:
Soils: 80% sandy gravels, 20% clay gravels.
Subsoils: deep translucent sand, pure gravels crossed by red clay and limestone marls, fossilized oyster beds and red and white clay.

Vinification:
Fermenting: 80% in oak barrels that have been used for the Sauternes great growth; 20% in stainless steel tank. Fermentation lasts for about 3 weeks.
Malolactic: depend of the vintage.
Ageing: average of 7 months in barrels, regularly stirring the lees.
