"Fresh and fruity nose of average intensity of aromatics. For once, it is not the spiciest wine. Upon swirling, it appears complex and smoky. Beautiful on entry. The wine develops melting, very aromatic with flavors reminding of citrus zest and finely bitter characteristics. It remains fat until the end where it finishes rich, powerful and long, mixing expressions of botrytis and passerillage. A success of the vintage." Jean-Marc Quarin

2007 VINTAGE

93 The Guiraud 2007 has a typically unabashed, exuberant bouquet with tangerine, pear, white peach and honeysuckle. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely viscous entry, very good weight of fruit, and a lot of botrytis; smooth and very harmonious towards the finish that would benefit from a little more clarity and dare I say, “personality”. Still, a very fine Sauternes. Drink 2012-2035. - Neil Martin

A gold-colored wine. The palate has intense freshness as well as ripe apricot and orange zest flavors. The acidity cuts through the intense richness, leaving a wine that needs time to fully integrate, and then many more years to mature.— (6/1/2010)
