The palate has intense freshness as well as ripe apricot and orange zest flavors. The acidity cuts through the intense richness leaving a wine that needs time to fully integrate and then many more years to mature.

The Guiraud 2007 has a typically unabashed exuberant bouquet with tangerine pear white peach and honeysuckle. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely viscous entry very good weight of fruit and a lot of botrytis; smooth and very harmonious towards the finish that would benefit from a little more clarity and dare I say "personality". Still a very fine Sauternes. Drink 2012-2035.

Fascinating nose combines pink grapefruit orange oil fresh apricot fresh herbs cinnamon and mace: all pits and peels and oils. Smooth concentrated and rich in botrytis with well-focused citrus and stone fruit flavors complicated by smoke flint figs and dates. Finishes very long and spicy firm-edged with citric flavors but not at all harsh. With three days in the recorked bottle this turned thicker and more honeyed and showed higher-toned notes of orange marmalade complicated by vanilla and toast all without loss of freshness. A very distinctive wine that really needs time to come into focus and should be long-lived. 92 points

Shows dried orange and apricot with a lime and honey undertone. Full-bodied with medium sweetness a fruity aftertaste of dried lemon and a medium spicy finish. A balanced and refined Guiraud. Best after 2011. -JS

The mid-palate is fat and rich with an almost oily character. Has some spice towards the end as well (clove mostly) This 2007 Sauternes has a lot going on and is certainly one of the stars this vintage has to offer.
