Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"The 2005 Guiraud has a slightly more reduced bouquet compared to the 2004, with dried honey, marmalade and just a hint of petrol emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry, crisp acidity, touches of beeswax and almond defining the harmonious waxy textured finish. This needs another two or three years in the cellar, but it should evolve into a delectable Sauternes." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 97
"Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not to drink it now."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Typical of the huge power of Guiraud, this is one of the richest Sauternes in 2005. The wine is rich and intense, the dry edge of botrytis just dominating the sweetness. Flavors of honey, almonds and peaches give the wine extra complexity."
