Château Guiraud Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2009
Fine and with lovely elegance, the 2009 Ch.Guiraud is a beautifully harmonious<br/>wine. Intense, ripe pineapple mingles with lemon and lime marmalade notes of<br/>botrytis whilst a seam of wet-stone minerality adds freshness. This, in<br/>conjunction with the crisp acidity, makes this a very sophisticated Sauternes.

External Reviews for Château Guiraud Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes
65% semillon and 35% sauvignon blanc. Spiced oak and caramel notes overlay the dense orange citrus core that ranges from freshly picked oranges to Grand Marnier liqueur. The well-integrated oak continues to add complexity to the fruit core on the palate with notes of vanilla spice and buttered cookie. Dense creamy and rich; overall a big powerful Sauternes characteristic of the vintage. Long long aging potential. Devon Magee.

This is a bird of a different feather with an exotic vibrant aroma of toasted coconut followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig papaya Cavaillon melon and honey. There s stunning richness and mouthfeel with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Very impressive. Best from 2015 through 2040. Wine Spectator.
The 2009 Guiraud is very tight on the nose, taking time to unfurl, with notes of apricot, peach, a touch of honeysuckle and quince. Good definition. The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore.
Bright golden yellow. Captivating spicy aromas of peach nectar, honey, ginger and menthol. Quite suave on entry, then rich and chewy in the middle, with lovely cut to its honeyed peach, melon, ripe citrus and lemongrass flavors. Thanks to lively acidity this wine conveys an impression of impeccable balance, and the high sauvignon content contributes to a fresher, lighter mouth feel. Finishes extremely long and pure, with vibrant lingering notes of gingery oak and clean botrytis. Extremely easy to drink.
Tense but the bottle I tasted was pretty cold so I had to coax it. Burnt notes underneath some floral quality. Really interesting! Chewy finish. A wine with so much character. Long. 18/20 Jancis Robinson.
Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2009 Guiraud has a complex, precocious bouquet with honeysuckle and jasmine notes, hints of dried honey and white peach. It is tightly wound but very precise. The palate is pure and tense in the mouth — great precision here once again with superbly integrated oak and a lovely, seductive, very viscous botrytis-laden finish. In many ways the 2009 represents the wine that every vintage since 1983 would love to be. Drink 2018–2040+ Tasted April 2013.
