    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #4 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe lemon peel and orange. Some honey and vanilla with loads of new wood. Dense and very sweet on the palate with nice pure fruit and firm tannins from the oak that still needs time to soften. This Sauternes shows a wonderful fruit and excellent potential, but needs time.

    James Suckling

    A thick, unctuous style, with marzipan, dried pineapple, mango and dried guava notes leading to a good bolt of toasted almond and pie crust on the finish. A muscular, well-stuffed version that will need some time to settle in. Best from 2015 through 2030.

    Wine Spectator

    A closed up wine, although all the elements are there, promising great final balance, richness and power.
    Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points

    The 2010 Chateau Guiraud has fine purity and minerality on the nose, with touches of passion fruit and dried apricot, later quince joining the fray. The palate is very well-balanced with a lively entry of apricot, quince and a touch of hazelnut. The middle and finish demonstrate fine tension and a lot of freshness. Individual lots seemed to have more race than the final sample, and I suspect it will warrant a higher score once the final blend is in bottle.
    Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points
