- Nick's Import
2016 Chateau Guiraud
This offers pineapple, ginger, apricot and peach chutney flavors, with good energy thanks to a singed hazelnut note weaving around.-J.M.
A full-bodied young Sauternes with lots of rich sliced cooked apples and pears. All the same, this remains spicy and energetic with an abundance of dried mushrooms, walnuts and almonds on the finish. Botrytis character comes through nicely already here.
This wine is hugely rich while having wonderful acidity at its end. Dense botrytis and a powerful structure go along with the honey and marmalade flavors. It will certainly age well and long.
