4/5

Delivers lot of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with cream, vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a beautiful spicy finish.

Pleasant colour. I enjoyed the toasted flavours.
This wine improved the meal.
I tried it during a wine tasting.
After doing a guided tour through the winery I bought some boxes.
The Chateau Guiraud Sauternes Premier Cru 2001 is a good wine with good wood flavour.

4/5

The Château Guiraud has the fourth place in the James Suckling's top100 wine.

The 2011 vintage comes with a double turning point: the first vintage certified organic and the first from a fully planted vineyard. It offers a beautiful floral nose, subtle and fresh. In mouth, the wine starts with a very soft structure full of freshness. This first cru shows opulent, rich and intense, with notes of yellow fruits, apricot particular, pear and a lovely light oak feeling. The whole is structured by a very treacly matter that perfectly matche the style of the vintage.Drink or keep: 2018 - 2035 or longerDelicious with: Crayfish
