The history of Château Guiraud brings us back to its first name « noble house of Bayle ». At that time, the estate was the ownership of the Mons de Saint Poly Family. February 22nd 1766, Pierre Guiraud, Bordeaux wine trader, buys the estate. In 80 years and three generations, the estate became a great wine when it was ranked as a Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855. The estate is located in the township of Sauternes between the church bell and the vines of Château d’Yquem. July 20th 2006, Château Guiraud is bought by four personalities: Robert Peugeot and three wine makers: Olivier Bernard, Stephan Von Neipperg and Xavier Planty. The meet of these two personalities during a dinner at Paris, is the event that launched the new team. The share of wine passion, gastronomy, nature and hunting, made them agree on the quality and philosophy of the cru.
