Tasted twice with slight variation. One sample was a bit more exuberant and expressive while the second was a bit more closed and tight. Both showed the same great tension and focused acids. The better of the two displayed intense citrus on the nose with a creamy base note that was well rounded and beautifully fresh. On the palate this has great concentration and weight. Very intense citrus crème pops on the palate leading into a long bright finish. With as much mouth feel and textured sweetness there is there are even more acids to keep it bright and fresh carrying through a long finish. Enjoy through 2040.

Dense and very sweet on the palate with nice pure fruit and firm tannins from the oak that still needs time to soften. This Sauternes shows a wonderful fruit and excellent potential, but needs time. Try in 2018.

A thick, unctuous style, with marzipan, dried pineapple, mango and dried guava notes leading to a good bolt of toasted almond and pie crust on the finish. A muscular, well-stuffed version that will need some time to settle in. Best from 2015 through 2030. – JM

The Guiraud 2010 seems a little more loose-knit on the nose compared to others, with lanolin and dried honey aromas gently unfurling in the glass, before revealing its mineral core – as if this wine is teasing you. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is abundant clean and pure botrytized fruit and a crisp, linear finish that is very appealing. The oak appears to have been absorbed in recent months, leaving a very accomplished Guiraud. Drink now-2035. - NEAL MARTIN

There is a wonderful balance to this wine. It has ripe tropical fruit flavors that are spiced with ginger and lemon zest.

It has ripe tropical fruit flavors that are spiced with ginger and lemon zest. At the same time, there is a fine structure with a botrytis core and freshness from pineapple acidity. Drink from 2017.

Smells a bit like Lucozade. Good freshness and attack. Not one of the sweetest. But very appetising. This is a wine you could drink with a meal. Muscular. Lively. 17.5/20
