Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc

37.5cl * Organic * 13.5% ABV * Bordeaux, France

One never thinks of anything except the great red wine producing château of Bordeaux as being classed as 'First Growths', but this producer of Sauternes (the sweet white wine of Bordeaux, made famous by the likes of Yquem) is one of the original Premier Cru Classé estates from the 1855 classification.

Certified organic since 2011, the first Premier Cru Classé estate to do so, Guiraud has been a pioneer in creating its own 'conservatory of grape varieties' and forging its own independent path.

Made from old vines (on average about 30-40 years old), this second wine of the estate is a blend of wines from several batches, selected for their style. Aged in oak barrels and stainless-steel vats, the main characteristic is its freshness and the fact that it can be enjoyed relatively young. Petit Guiraud, therefore, gives us drinkers the chance to enjoy wine from a First Growth estate at a very reasonable price.
