“The crop was small – barely 9 hl/ha this year – but of superb quality. A hail storm on Easter Monday (25 April at 6 pm) led to the estimated loss of 40% of the crop, and as much as 80% in certain parts of the vineyard… The wine taste remarkably good: concentrated, aromatic, and complex. The speed with which the grapes became concentrated preserved magnificent vivaciousness. The wines are truly brilliant.” – Xavier Planty, Château Guiraud

“Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 2006 has a floral bouquet with a peppermint-like freshness and vitality – so much that you might think it originates from the New World (not meant pejoratively). The palate is viscous and very well-balanced on the entry with prudently judged acidity cutting through intense mango, marmalade and apricot flavours. There is a superb sense of weight and presence to this Sauternes that should be considered a great success. Drink 2015-2028+ Tasted April 2013.” – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Tasted June 2013)
