Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
An excellent, intensely rich Sauternes from the Premiere Cru vineyard, Chateau Guiraud. Showing honey-tinged fruit with a lovely botrytis quality and slight nuance of smoke and spice. Enjoy with fois gras or desert.
The first and the only of the Premiers Grands Crus Classés in the 1855 Bordeaux classification to obtain organic certification, Chateau Guiraud lies 45 km south from Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Garonne river.
The undisputed king of France's wine regions, Bordeaux sits amidst and astride the rivers Dordogne and Garonne. Accounting for some 800 million bottles produced each year, Bordeaux has built its reputation on quality, with some of the world's most sought-after wines being crafted along the river banks. Bordeaux also creates a large amount of table wine, mostly sourced from the lesser of Bordeaux's 57 appellations. Bordeaux boasts over 10,000 winemakers. Known mostly for the red blends, Bordeaux also enjoys notoriety for its excellent sweet white wines, as well as several high-quality dry whites created mostly in the central regions between the two rivers.
