Chateau Guiraud G Dry White 2005

Words not included
This wine was something of a curio in a blind tasting.  The "G" is a "dry Sauternes" made by the eminent Chateau Guiraud, that is only entitled to a humble AOC Bordeaux as a dry wine.  In effect and fact, it is simply a semillon-sauvignon blanc blend.  What then of the wine?  Golden in colour, the wine opens to an aroma of intense peaches, grapes, grass, (less attractively) a touch of burnt rubber, stones and minerals.  On the palate, there is a good dose of grapey length, apricots and high acid.  Frankly, it's a good wine that is worth a look, although it is more than a little odd.  88 points.
