Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. Like one or two other 2007s, the aromatics on the Guiraud ’07 are rather subdued at the moment and they demand coaxing to offer honey, lemon curd and orange blossom. The palate is well-balanced with finer tannins than the 2006. Here, the quality of the vintage finally shows through with impressive precision and focus, building toward the fresh, feminine apricot and dried peach finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is an outstanding Guiraud, but it will reward those with patience. Drink 2017-2035. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin

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.
