Chateau Guiraud 1997, a 1er Cru Classé sweet dessert wine from the commune of Sauternes, is a dark golden, sweet, sumptuous white dessert wine from what is the most famous of all French sweet wine appellations. It has an unusually intense rich nose of pineapple, melted butter and crystallized citrus with orange notes with liquorice and cinnamon. 1997 was an excellent vintage in Sauternes and this flavoursome, full-bodied, intense wine proves this well.

Writing in the Wine Advocate in 2013, Neal Martin detected
" ..wild honey and marmalade aromas that mingle with vanilla pod and peach skin. The palate is well-balanced and fresh on the entry with crisp acidity cutting through the Seville orange marmalade and quince fruit. Drink until 2025.

Château Guiraud was classified as a first growth in the 1855 Bordeaux classification.
