Ch Guiraud 2009, 1er Cru Classe, Sauternes, Half Bottle

Parker : 94 / 100
Jancis Robinson : 18 / 20
Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Guiraud comes sashaying out of the glass with a wonderfully floral nose of jasmine and peach blossoms with an undercurrent of potpourri, dried mango, honey nut, baked pineapple and preserved ginger. The mouth is completely coated with concentrated baking spice and savory layers countering all the rich sweetness, finishing long and layered.
