Reviews for 2010 Guiraud Sauternes Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2011
This is developing some real power with glazed peach and pear fruit pushed by graham and honey notes. There's lots of viscosity on the finish but with good underlying acidity. -J.M.

A closed up wine although all the elements are there promising great final balance richness and power.

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

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.
