It is brought to us by Xavier Planty, the dashing and debonair owner of Château Guiraud. Château Guiraud has been represented at every Heart’s Delight since the beginning. ‘The Château Guiraud 2014 has a perfumed bouquet with clear honey, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas that are well defined. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry: good tension and focus here, very harmonious with a gently build in the mouth towards a satisfying marmalade and quince-driven finish.’”
