Château Guiraud-Cheval-Blanc Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Bourg 2002
A truly great one. A beautiful year which strengthens us in our strategy about botrytis. Beginning of the harvest on the 11th of September, and on the 2nd of October, 90% of the harvest was done, with a plentiful and wonderful second trie, it is at the heart of this grand cru. I love this wine ! A full bodied wine, very typical, with almond aromas, white flowers, orange, pear and zest of citrus. The spices of botrytis appears through green tea and pepper notes. A beautiful balance acidity/ fat, and length in mouth. It will lastmore than the reputation on the vintage.

External Reviews for Château Guiraud-Cheval-Blanc Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Bourg
Nice and spicy on the nose with plenty of apple tart and vanilla character. Medium- to full-bodied with lots of sweet-and-sour character. Medium finish medium sweet. Best after 2007. 8 000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.
Full medium yellow. Pineapple and sexy barrel notes on the nose. Big rich dense and powerful with penetratingflavors of pineapple and ripe yellow peach. Shows a hint of sauvignon pungency without going at all herbaceous. Firmly built and long. An impressively fat and young 2002 that should age well. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2002 Guiraud is more reticent on the nose than the 2001 with aromas of peach skin lime pith and wax resin though the definition is very fine. The palate is fresh and vital on the entry with crisp acidity plenty of fresh mango and quince flavours. It does not possess the harmony of the 2001 but the finish exudes clarity and precision that dares outshine the previous vintage. Excellent. Drink 2015-2030+ Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Ro
