Château Guiraud 2017 marks the first release in the Primeur vintage 2017. Bordeaux Tradition tells you more about it !

First Primeur Release : the Willingness of Xavier Planty

Château Guiraud has participated in the early days of Bordeaux. The year 2018 is no exception to this custom. For the second year in a row, Château Guiraud opted for sincerity and transparency with early release. This initiative, already welcomed, is a reflection of the true and fair spirit of Château Guiraud.

Thus, Xavier Planty expresses himself on this subject thanks to a press release in April 4, 2018: “Dear friends, you will welcome many customers during this exceptional week […]. It is in a concern of coherence and quality of reception – that as last year – Château Guiraud wishes that its wines are appreciated with their selling price. It is, it seems to me, the minimum of respect I owe to all those customers who come from all over the world. “
