Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012 Half Bottle
More information:
A clear connection and an haute couture label Petit Guiraud is the new name for the second wine made by Château Guiraud, a Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification. This new name carries with it the responsibility to be worthy of a direct association with the grand vin. The label has been redesigned, but remains faithful to the gold and black that has always been a symbol of Château Guiraud and its history*. The two labels have an obvious family resemblance; Petit Guiraud’s is less austere, with a floral design evoking a light, feminine wine, born of a gentle, harmonious environment. A characteristic freshness Petit Guiraud is a modern Sauternes made by Xavier Planty, a co-owner and Château Guiraud’s oenologist since 1982. It is made partly from batches that have been fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and partly from batches fermented in new French oak barrels, which provide and restore freshness and minerality to the wine. This perfect balance, which results in an extremely refined sweetness, is given extra freshness by a high proportion of Sauvignon. Complicity with nature Petit Guiraud is produced without chaptalisation or cryoextraction, or any other form of enrichment, and meets the same standards as Château Guiraud. Château Guiraud is the only Premier Grand Cru Classé of 1855 to have obtained organic certification for its vineyard and to be strongly committed to a broad and genuine consideration of the environmental issues of wine production.
