Bid on this bottle of 1980 Guiraud, Sauternes. Château Guiraud actually lies in the town of Sauternes. The estate encompasses 128 hectares, which includes 98.21 hectares under vine: 85 hectares for Sauternes AC and the rest is used for a dry white Bordeaux named "Le G de Guiraud." The vineyard lies on a mostly sandy/gravel soil with a heterogeneous sub-soil of red clay, marl and gravel. There is a relatively high proportion of Sauvignon Blanc planted: 35% of the vineyard with the remainder devoted to Sémillon (the average for Sauternes is 10% Sauvignon Blanc.)
Starting Bid: $35.00

Bid on this 5-bottle tasting lot; including 4-bottles of 1980 Nairac, Sauternes and 1-bottle of 1980 Nairac, Sauternes (375ML). Of the 1980 Nairac, Sauternes, Wine Advocate writes: "Nairac's 1980 is a well-balanced, light golden-colored wine that displays a good level of botrytis, a spicy, tropical fruit, oaky bouquet, medium body, soft acidity, and a fat, tasty finish. It is fully mature. (RP)" (01/1998)

Bid on this 6-half-bottle lot of 1980 Rieussec, Sauternes (375mL). Robert Parker ranks the 1980 vintage of Sauternes and Barsac as Above Average to Excellent. He also has praise for the producer: As one approaches the heart of the Sauternes appellation, Château Rieussec and its prominent look-out tower can be spotted on one of the highest hillsides. The Rieussec vineyards, spread across the hillsides of Fargues and Sauternes overlooking the left bank of the Garonne, have the highest altitude after those of d'Yquem. Surprising for a Bordeaux property, the entire vineyard is one single unit. Rieussec has always had an outstanding reputation, but there is no doubting that after its acquisition by Albert Vuillier in 1971, the quality rose, largely because of the increase in new oak and the more frequent passes through the vineyard to harvest only heavily botrytised grapes...
