Chateau Guiraud Sauternes (375ML Futures Pre-Sale) 2010
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.
A closed up wine, although all the elements are there, promising great final balance, richness and power.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
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.
