Guiraud 2006 375ml

Sweet lime sherbet with bitter orange notes. Lots of power, sweetness and richness. Some notes of green vegetation on the very back palate but overall a good debut for the new regime. Just a bit hard and green on the finish. Jancis Robinson MW 17.5

Tasted with a negotiant. Undoubtedly one of my favourite Sauternes in 2006, juxtaposed against the 2005 I think this is better. The nose takes some coaxing but eventually reveals a delectable bouquet of honey and white flowers. The palate has a crisp entry, a good level of botrytis with racy acidity. Very harmonious with notes of tangerine, honey and a touch of apricot on the mid-palate. Nice fatness to it and impressive length. Excellent. Tasted March 2007. Neal Martin 93-95  Wine Advocate
