Chateau Guiraud, Sauternes, BordeauxChateau  Guiraud
The concentrated grapes arrive in small plastic crates and are carefully tipped into the wine press. The harvest is pressed in its entirety. We have four pneumatic presses enabling us at pressing to separate the grapes into batches from each plot of land. We start by using low pressure (0,2 bars) to release the first juice, less rich, during one hour. The liquid released is rich, fat very sweet, it has to find a way through the berries squashed together by the pressure. After this initial stage the pressure is gently increased to 2 bars (for 2 hours) to extract the richer juice and to allow it to run free. The volume from a pressing is between 12-13 hl. At the end of the harvest we will have an average of 50 to 60 different batches of wine. The separation of these batches will ensure that each batch will keep its own personality, potential and characteristics. (All the batches do not have the same potential alcohol percentage, nor the same soil structures, orientation, yield, age…). So at blending we will have a wide range of aromas and complexity allowing us a wide choice of possible blends to create a great Guiraud. In this crucial choice our objective is to remain true to the characteristics of our particular style and that of our ‘terroir’.

Sauternes is a type of dessert wine from the Sauternais region of the Graves section in the well known Bordeaux wine making area of France. Sauternes is made from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes that have been affected by Botrytis cinerea, also known as noble rot. The Botrytis Wine Club, SAPROS is the first word in ancient Greek, which dared to associate the notions of rot, of overripe fruit, of nectar, of mellow and of noble within a wine. Rare in France are sweet or semi-sweet wines obtained uniquely by natural concentration. These exceptional wines are the result of a work ethic both in the vines and in the cellars, respecting nature enabling the wines to become a specific and magical expression of the soils and the grape varieties both translating and perfecting their uniqueness. During tastings, meetings and exchanges around surrounding botrytised wines throughout France several of these winemakers have decided to create in the spring of 2001 an "Association loi 1901" named SAPROS... We share the same ethic based upon a simple precept. Our sweet wines must be the natural offspring of the sun, wind, mists and botrytis. Therein lies their magic..... Artificial procedures of concentration and enrichment, are obviously reviled and banished.
