WS92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 1995
This full-bodied Sauternes stretches the limits of botrytis. Offers loads of beeswax, almost moldy aromas, yet it is fresh and zingy with plenty of honey, spice, toast and lemon flavors. Try in 1998.

Medium color. Cassis and a high-toned note of varnish on the nose. Sweet, layered and deep, but rather unforthcoming today, due in part to fresh acidity. Finishes slightly fiery. This still needs several years of bottle... Medium color. Cassis and a high-toned note of varnish on the nose. Sweet, layered and deep, but rather unforthcoming today, due in part to fresh acidity.

The nose is a little one-dimensional with clean botrytized fruit: quince, a hint of apricot and lemon zest, but it needs more vigour and lift. The palate is viscous on the entry with marmalade and butterscotch, but it is slightly cloying towards the finish. Not a bad Guiraud, but it pales against recent vintages. Tasted May 2011.
