2017 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 95

Pineapple, mango, white peach and candied orange rind are blended together and topped with vanilla bean and honey to make this a confectionary extravagance. But like all the great sweet wines, it's the harmonizing acidity that's needed to bring freshness

2016 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Fresh, ripe and overripe sweet pineapple, mango, apricot and white peach fruits are all wrapped up quite nicely with vanilla and honey coated nuts.

Juicy pineapple, apricot, peach and vanilla blend to create the nose. Rich, lush and sweet, the wine finishes with overripe tropical fruits coated with honey.

2015 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 96

Combine a cornucopia of tropical fruits with orange zest, a jar of honey, vanilla bean and just picked flowers, and you get the picture. Delicious, concentrated, lush and remarkably fresh, this is going to age for decades.

A stunner in 2015, this is incredibly packed with fat, juicy, ripe and over ripe honeyed apricots, vanilla custard, pineapple, honey and candied citrus. Great balance between concentration, sweetness and blazing acidity with the ability to age and evolve for decades! 94 - 96 Pts

2014 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 95

This is really rocking! The levels of acidity give this all the lift you need, so that the sweet, honey drenched, tropical fruit and vanilla can really shine.

2013 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Rich, sweet honey coated tropical fruits, vanilla bean, nuts and flowers open the wine. The sweet and spicy element that comes on top of the fruit makes the naturally honeyed tropical fruits really come alive.

Fat, juicy and packed with honeyed apricot, pineapple, vanilla bean and candied oranges, this lush treat is perfectly balanced by sweet honeyed fruit and refreshing acidity. 93-95 Pts

2011 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Filled with spicy, candied orange, nuts, honey, pineapple, apricot and vanilla, the wine lacks a bit of the intensity found in the top wines of the vintage. Yet, it still delivers a tasty, sweet, tropical, orange, honeyed finish with good freshness.

2010 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 92

I know it's young, but I really enjoy the freshness and super sweetness found in young Sauternes. More on the orange, tangerine and apricot side of the style range, instead of tropical fruits, there is enough honeyed sweetness, acidity and vanilla notes, along with good concentration of flavor to keep you busy.

2008 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 91

Medium/full bodied, lacking the same level of depth and concentration found in 2007 or 2009. However, there is a lot to like about the wine with its vanilla, apricot, orange marmelade, honeysuckle and pineapple filled personality. Sweet, soft, luscious and forward, this is already delivering pleasure.

2007 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 92

A beautiful nose filled with flowers and spicy, honey coated orange, apricot, peach and pineapple gets you excited. This rich, concentrated wine ends with a long sensation of warm nuts, honey and sweet, ripe, tropical fruit.

2006 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 91

On the orange side of the style range, with plenty of honeyed, tangerine, apricot, nectarine, pineapple and honeysuckle. Medium/full bodied, with freshness and lift, but lacking more of the yellow fruit I find in the best years.

2005 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Absolutely delicious with layers of sweet, ripe, pineapple, apricot, peach, peach and honey flavors. Rich, sweet, fleshy and fresh, drink it now, drink it in a decade. This is a great value for Sauternes.

2001 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Spicy, floral, orange rind, apricot, nectarine, honey and nut aromas pair perfectly with the rich, sweet, ripe sensations of honey coated, tropical fruit. Sweet, sexy, fresh and fun to drink now, this offers good value for 2001 Sauternes.

1990 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 89

At the end of its best days, or perhaps slightly past that point, the wine shows more caramel, butterscotch, orange and burn toffee notes than, sweet, yellow, honeyed fruit. On the bright orange side in the finish, if you are sitting on bottles, I'd drink them up, before more of the sweet fruit slowly fades away.

1983 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 91

Surprisingly strong, the concentrated, sweet, ripe and overripe, juicy pineapple, apricot, orange marmalade and assorted tropical fruits offer that majestic blend of acidity and honeyed, caramel sweetness.

1937 Château Guiraud  (Sauternes) 93

Dark, molasses in color, this is all about the secondary notes of caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, creme brulee and honeyed, vanilla and orange peel. You definitely note the age, but in a good way as there is still some sweetness and honeyed fruits, along with acidity to keep this interesting.
