Chateau Guiraud Sauternes 2014


SKU 1472


Fermentation and ageing in oak barrels improve the wine through a direct contact between wine and the wood, extracting some organoleptic characteristics of the oak by the action of the yeast which will mix with the wine yeast adding refinement to the wine.

Wine SpectatorNot shy, with unctuous dried apricot, peach and tangerine fruit flavors, augmented with ginger, bitter orange and bitter almond notes that add tension. Expressive, with a floral twinge on the finish imparting lift. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,500 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast94-96. Barrel Sample. This wine is packed with dry botrytis flavor, but also a bright freshness. Together they give an obviously sweet wine good structure as well as ripeness. The tension between the fruit and the mineral texture will allow this wine to age for many years.
