Château Guiraud Sauternes En Primeur 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Jancis Robinson writes: "Interesting nose with a bit of an edge - really appetising as well as very sweet. I failed to spit this one - always a good sign. Very long and a good combination of structure, acidity and very ripe fruit. Tightly laced even if not the sweetest. Interesting smokiness on the nose." "This rocks with botrytis, offering spicy almond, peach pie and dried apricot on the nose and palate. Full and very sweet, with a long finish. So much dried fruit. Oily and powerful. Some bitterness. 35 percent Sauvignon Blanc and 65 percent Sémillon."-J.S.Wine Spectator. "An absolute classical Haut-Bommes wine, with wonderful and refined apricot aromas, silky texture, perfect 'roasted berries' sensation, great length, great future." (18.5 points) Decanter
