Château Guiraud, Sauternes, 1er Cru Classé, 2011
Lush apple compote and apricot nose with a kiss of oak and a hint of lanolin. Unctuous texture – rich and powerful – but with enough fruit and acidity to balance. A unique, luscious but lively style. Stephen Brook 90 Sebastian Payne MW 93 Xavier Rousset MS 93
Drinking Window: 2016 - 2045
Discreet apricot and mandarin nose. Fine attack of freshness and purity. Silky and intense, with fine acidity to lift the fruit. Needs time to develop complexity. Fine potential and good length.
