One of the top Sauternes in this report is the 2016 Château Guiraud, a brilliant wine from a more challenging vintage for the Sauternes region. 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.
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. (RV)
Wow--right out of the gate, the pale lemon colored 2016 Guiraud has an electric lemon tart, key lime pie and mandarin peel-scented nose with notions of cinnamon, allspice and toasted almonds in the background. The palate is refreshing while delivering loads of bright citrus layers and a long, spicy finish. (LPB) 94+
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.
