"La Maison Noble du Bayle" is the historic name of Château Guiraud, from when it was owned by the Mons de Saint Poly family. In 1766 Bordeaux merchant Pierre Guiraud bought the estate. In the 80 years and three generations that followed, Guiraud has become a prestigious name and classified as a First Growth of Sauternes in the 1855 Classification.
Pale lemon-gold in colour, the 2019 Guiraud springs from the glass with vivacious scents of lemon marmalade, orange blossoms, pink grapefruit and fresh pineapple with hints of candied ginger and musk perfume plus a waft of beeswax. The palate delivers concentrated citrus and dried pineapple flavours with apricot and spicy sparks, lifted by a lively line of freshness, finishing satisfyingly sweet and perfumed.
