A great opportunity to elevate your collection to 1er Grand Cru status.

We have just received a tiny direct shipment of this top flight Sauternes. With no wholesaler in the mix, this is priced around 40% less than what it ordinarily would be. Bright golden straw colour with deep gold edges and pale gold hue. Scents of ripe honeyed apricot, some raisins, honeycomb and spice. The nose is a little subdued but the palate more than makes up for it. A stunning delivery combines sublime textural qualities and concentration in a slow motion explosion of honey, ripe apricot, peach, toffee and spicy honeycomb flavours. Concludes clean with excellent acid structure and continues with an exceptionally long honeyed peach, ripe apricot & spice aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years (2020-2022).

Other Reviews….
Tasted single blind against its peers. Having been parsimonious with my score last year due to some sulphur issues, I can report that Guiraud has turned good?very good. It has a very fine bouquet with scents of lemon curd, pineapple and quince that gains momentum in the glass. The palate is supremely well-balanced with crisp acidity. There are a myriad of flavors in this Sauternes with dried honey, quince, Seville orange marmalade and a touch of ginger. There is also great persistency towards the finish. This is a sublime Sauternes.
