« The 2016 G de Chateau Guiraud has a crisp grass clipping and limestone-scented bouquet that is nicely defined, although I would like to see more vigor. The palate is crisp on the entry with a touch of lemongrass, a pleasant edginess here with satisfying weight on the finish. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker) Perfect to enjoy now !

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 15,5/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : Nez juvénile, acacia, bourgeon, assez discret. Attaque crémeuse, retour sur le bourgeon, la fleur. Finale fraîche et cristalline. Retour sur le zeste.

About the vineyard : Un des Sauternes les plus fins de notre temps, parfois un peu fragile au vieillissement en bouteille, issu d'une viticulture irréprochable.

Wine Advocate - Robert Parker

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 87-89/100 (Impeccablement bien fait !)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : (dégusté au chai) - Le G de Chateau Guiraud 2016 dévoile un bouquet parfumé d'herbe et de calcaire bien défini. La bouche est croustillante en attaque avec une touche de citronnelle, une agréable nervosité que l’on retrouve en finale. Il a juste besoin de se développer un peu plus avant sa mise en bouteille.

About the vineyard :  

Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France - RVF

Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France - RVF

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

About the vineyard : Ce premier cru classé de Sauternes appartient aujourd'hui à quatre copropriétaires : Robert Peugeot, Olivier Bernard (domaine de Chevalier), Stephan Von Neipperg (Château Canon-la-Gaffelière) et Xavier Planty. Sous l'adroite direction de Xavier Planty, le cru offre depuis de nombreux millésimes un parfait exemple de grand sauternes moderne, rôti, très ouvert dès ses premières années et qui a énormément gagné en finesse et en minéralité. La viticulture y est parfaitement soignée, Guiraud a d'ailleurs été le premier des premiers crus classés de 1855 à bénéficier de la labellisation bio, en 2011. Le domaine parvient, avec énormément de volonté, à respecter le développement naturel de la pourriture noble. La vinification, quant à elle, se refuse à la moindre chaptalisation, comme cela devrait d'ailleurs être le cas pour tous les crus classés - cause pour laquelle milite Xavier Planty. Le Château produit également, sur des terroirs non classés en Sauternes, en appellation Bordeaux, un important volume d'un vin blanc sec à boire dans sa prime jeunesse.

Un bordeaux blanc bien construit, qui offre pas mal de plaisir. Il supporte très bien une dégustation sur plusieurs jours et son aromatique ne fait qu'évoluer positivement.

Très bon (plutôt frais et sans grande complexité), bio et abordable....que demander de plus ?
