Château Guiraud, a Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification, has just obtained organic farming certification. It is the first and the only one of the Premiers Grands Crus Classés in the 1855 Bordeaux classification to obtain such certification, which was initiated by director, Xavier Planty, in 1995. Guiraud’s decision to adopt organic viticultural methods is shaping the new style of the property’s wines, putting greater emphasis on purity, intensity and elegance... The implementation of such growing methods and an alternative approach to the vineyard have resulted in a new awareness and a different wine aesthetic. The search for maximum sugar is over and the vocabulary has changed, it is no longer a question of power but of purity of flavour, finesse and producing finely-constructed, balanced wines.
