2015 Guiraud 75CL
Wine Rating: WS 95 points
Drink by: 2020 - 2040
Intense, with candied lemon peel, glazed yellow apple and honey notes streaming through, picking up mirabelle plum and papaya accents through the finish, which is carried by a buried racy streak. This has a good bright feel overall.
"As early as 1766 Château Guiraud, breaking with cultural traditions, proclaiming its political difference, and on a constant quest for prestige, was already juggling between anticonformism and innovation.
The Guiraud family of merchants, founders of the modern estate, built up an atmosphere of mystery around Château Guiraud. The Protestant chapel was a proclamation of the family’s religious beliefs and their faith at a time when all around them looked towards Rome. Since that time the property has borne the name Château Guiraud and proudly displays a black label that sacralizes the family's Protestant and Republican values.
This black label is one of the oldest in the Bordeaux region and has remained unchanged since its creation. Within three generations the property was to become a prestigious Grand Cru, being consecrated Premier Grand Cru Classe in 1855 in the classification ordered by the Emperor Napoleon III."
