Situated 45km South of Bordeaux on the left bank of the Garonne river, Chateau Guiraud covers 128 hectares in the villages of Sauternes and is known for its exceptional botrytisized sweet wines made from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The wines are aged in barrel for 24 months before bottling. They are aromatic, lusciously sweet and lively making them the ideal accompaniment to blue cheese and fruit based desserts. The black label still in use today came from the Guiraud family. The label, with its gold coat of arms logo, symbolizing their Protestant roots, is one of the oldest, original designs in the Bordeaux region and has essentially remained unchanged since it was originally designed.
