2007 Guiraud, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)
92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a lovely rounded honeyed, slightly buttery nose with touches of white peach and white flowers. The palate is very well balanced, great tension and weight in the middle. Honeyed fruits, mango, peach, a touch of brioche and quince. Complex and displaying some admirable levels of botrytis, the finish is viscous and very focused. Great length. Superb. Drink 2012-2040. Tasted April 2008." (04/08) 91-95 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and oily, with spicy character and lots of very ripe pineapple and pear flavors. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long finish. Layered and concentrated." (Web 08) K&L's notes: *½ Honey and pineapple. Perfect acid balance. Long and lingering. Everyone loves this. At UGC this was stunning-fat, rich, lush, balanced and sweet. One of the stars of 2007. Ralph: ** Ripe, apricot notes and very rich on the palate-nice citrus finish. Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux buyer says: "This is much better than their 2005, which was #4 in the Wine Spectator's Top 100."
