This is a bird of a different feather, with an exotic, vibrant aroma of toasted coconut, followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig, papaya, Cavaillon melon and honey. There's stunning richness and mouthfeel, with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Very impressive. Best from 2015 through 2040.

The 2009 Guiraud is very tight on the nose, taking time to unfurl, with notes of apricot, peach, a touch of honeysuckle and quince. Good definition.

The 2009 Guiraud is very tight on the nose, taking time to unfurl, with notes of apricot, peach, a touch of honeysuckle and quince. Good definition. The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore.

65% semillon and 35% sauvignon blanc. Spiced oak and caramel notes overlay the dense orange citrus core that ranges from freshly picked oranges to Grand Marnier liqueur. The well-integrated oak continues to add complexity... 65% semillon and 35% sauvignon blanc. Spiced oak and caramel notes overlay the dense orange citrus core that ranges from freshly picked oranges to Grand Marnier liqueur. The well-integrated oak continues to add complexity to the fruit core on the palate with notes of vanilla spice and buttered cookie. Dense, creamy, and rich; overall a big, powerful Sauternes characteristic of the vintage. Long, long aging potential.

Tense but the bottle I tasted was pretty cold so I had to coax it. Burnt notes underneath some floral quality. Really interesting! Chewy finish. A wine with so much character. Long. 18/20
