    Wine Spectator:  "This is a bird of a different feather, with an exotic, vibrant aroma of toasted coconut, followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig, papaya, Cavaillon melon and honey.  There's stunning richness and mouthfeel, with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage.  Very impressive.  Best from 2015 through 2040."  Mar 2012

    James Suckling:  "Gorgeous aromas of dried apricots, apple pie crust and pineapple.  Full-bodied, with medium sweetness.  Dense and layered.  Beautiful now but will improve with age.  Drink or hold."  May 2013

    Winery:  "Château Guiraud wine is born of simplicity and proven methods.  This wine is aged for approximately 18 months in oak barrels specially selected for their contribution to the wine’s elegant manner and the immensity of the its soul.  The bouquet is precise, the texture is sensual, the smoothness has a somewhat mineral tone; Château Guiraud expresses elegant purity and aromatic refinement."
