50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon from a single small plot, with 80% aged 7 months in used Sauternes barrels! Lees stirring brings texture and complexity. On the palate, concentrated flavors of apricot, mango, and baked apple with a spicy edge and well balanced acidity. Drinking like a dream right now!

A new wine from this estate and the inaugural vintage, the 2020 Château Guiraud Blanc Sec comes from the estate’s vines in Sauternes and is 70% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon that saw partial malolactic fermentation and spent 12 months in barrels. It shows a medium gold hue as well as a bright, crisp, yet still rich bouquet of caramelized Meyer lemons, lime, toasted break, white flowers, and some classic chalky, mineral-like nuances. Beautiful on the palate as well, it has a layered, medium-bodied, nicely concentrated mouthfeel, good acidity, and a clean finish. It's a richer yet balanced and still lively white that's going to shine on the dinner table. I'd drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years or so, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see this evolve nicely for well over a decade.

Richer in mouthfeel than some vintages of G de Guiraud, this has a lovely tang of lime juice and lemongrass and silky texture - enjoyable and with a twist on the finish.
