The name of Chateau Guiraud, 1st growth in the 1855 classification, dates back to 1766, when Bordeaux wine merchant Pierre Guiraud purchased the "the Noble House of Bayle". Château Guiraud, covering over a hundred hectares of vineyards, is renowned for its natural approach to noble rot (excluding chemical herbicides and insecticides, setting of insect houses, 5 km of bushes plantation, genetic diversity, conservatory vine, natural water treatment, organic farming) and for the finesse of its sweet wines from Sauternes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1998 Guiraud is medium gold colored and has quite a toasty/nutty nose with praline and croissant notions over a core of peach preserves, oil skin and white truffle. Mature in the mouth, it sports appealing stone fruit and earthy layers with the richness coming through on the finish.
