Product description

Tasting Notes:

The feeling in mouth is magnificent, soft, but robust. The tonic feeling of the botrytis is amplified by a great freshness. Mouth aromas strengthens up the nose: the botrytis now shows them crystallized, of great precision and purity. The aftertaste is long. The sugar power never gives heaviness: It is the magic of natural sugars sublimated by botrytis

 

 

A special care for nature, men, their knowledge and tradition are to be found in the daily vineyard work and wine making.

Respect for biodiversity, putting living organisms back in their native environment, letting nature spring back in the place and making sure that all ecologic factors implied in the growth are well balanced.

 

 

"The Guiraud 2010 seems a little more loose-knit on the nose compared to others, with lanolin and dried honey aromas gently unfurling in the glass, before revealing its mineral core – as if this wine is teasing you. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is abundant clean and pure botrytized fruit and a crisp, linear finish that is very appealing. The oak appears to have been absorbed in recent months, leaving a very accomplished Guiraud. Drink now-2035."
