Wine Enthusiast, April 2017
(WE94-96 points) This wine is hugely rich while having wonderful acidity at its end. Dense botrytis and a powerful structure go along with the honey and marmalade flavors. It will certainly age well and long.

Beautiful, powerful notes of sugared peach, blood orange, caramelized pineapple, and honey all give way to a full-bodied Sauternes that has loads of sweetness and richness, yet good acidity as well. It does everything right and will offer up incredible pleasure over the coming 25-30 years.

The palate has beautiful vibrancy and loads of lively tropical and spicy layers, finishing very long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Decanter, April 2017
Guiraud walks the line of minerality, florality and richness effectively for me. Lime juice oozes through, you can't hold it back, and your mouth responds. Succulent, with a well judged salinity. Very good. Read more...   Guiraud walks the line of minerality, florality and richness effectively for me. Lime juice oozes through, you can't hold it back, and your mouth responds.

Masses of candied citrus and marzipan, plus a touch of mango chutney, make this full-bodied Sauternes easy to enjoy. Generous and succulent finish. Moderately sweet for this appellation. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator, March 2019
This delivers a rather solid punch of glazed peach and mango flavors, with notes of white ginger and pear chutney on the juicy finish. Approachable, but no real rush. Best from 2021 through 2032. 5,000 cases made. — JM
