"G" is a dry white wine made of ripe but not mouldy grapes. The grapes are harvested choosing the ripest bunches or portions of bunches. Excluding all moulding or green grapes. A second selection through the vines may be necessary. After pressing and keeping only the very first juice, the juice is clarified at a low temperature (10°c) for 24 hours. The fermentation starts about 12/13°C and finishes at about 19°C. It occurs in oak barrels and the lees are regularly stirred for the first 3-4 months. Barrel aging usually lasts for 9 months.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 G de Château Guiraud offers nectarine, pithy fruit on the nose that needs just a little more delineation. The palate is crisp and fresh with plenty of citrus fruit, dried pineapple and green apples on the energetic finish. Give this a year once in bottle and you'll have a great G de Guiraud.
