ABOUT THE WINE
A Sauternes 1er Cru Classé which failed to live up to its classification until Canadian Hamilton Narby acquired it in 1981, and set about transforming it into one of the region's finest estates. Comprised of 85 hectares of vines on a hillside above the village of Sauternes, Guiraud is a property with the potential to rival Château d'Yquem, producing wines which balance rich flavour with exceptional delicacy.

TASTING NOTES
Fat and jovial; marmalade, candied orange, butter and nutty aromas. Rich and full-bodied in the palate, with wild honey, vanilla pod and peach. Not especially complex, but extremely satisfying.

FOOD PAIRING
Superb with blue cheese.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
1997 was a spectacular vintage for Sauternes.
