Very good lift and expression. The palate is medium-bodied spicy entry good level of botrytis will real depth. Marmalade quince and spice viscous botrytis-rich finish. This should age beautifully.

Subtle but with complex aromas of honey spices apple pie and lemon candy. Full-bodied and medium sweet with intense botrytis and lemon peel character and bright acidity. Powerful and long. Best after 2012. â_"JS

The Guiraud 2006 has a floral bouquet with a peppermint-like freshness and vitality – so much that you might think it originates from the New World (not meant pejoratively). The palate is viscous and very well-balanced on the entry with prudently judged acidity cutting through intense mango, marmalade and apricot flavours. There is a superb sense of weight and presence to this Sauternes that should be considered a great success. Drink 2015-2028+ - Neal Martin

On the orange side of the style range, with plenty of honeyed, tangerine, apricot, nectarine, pineapple and honeysuckle.
