2009 Chateau Guiraud, Sauternes

'This vintage is simply extraordinary. With a beautiful yield, we have produced a powerful wine, very aromatic, that presents a perfect alcohol-sugar-acidity balance and an impressive purity of botrytis. In the mouth, we find the pink grapefruit, lemon confit, notes of apricot, an opulence supported by a very roasted botrytis. An impeccable picking allows a wide definition of the growth and an obvious representation of the terroir of Guiraud; wine tight, straight and pure.'  Xavier Planty, co-owner and estate manager.
