2001 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1009405 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. *No. 23 Top 100 Wines of 2004, Highly Recommended* (JS) Inner quote mark (9/2004)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Intensely fruity and rich with wonderful sweetness and loads of spicy and honey character with a dried apricot undertone. It hasn’t changed much since I last tasted it, just bottled. Great 2001. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium golden yellow color. Knockout nose combines pineapple, yellow plum, marzipan, roasted herbs and resiny oak. Superconcentrated, chewy and stylish, with flavors of honey, pineapple, marzipan, vanilla, toffee and spicy oak framed and intensified by bright acidity. Impressively dense, saline wine with a very firm spine and considerable aging potential. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (8/2004)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark … It still boasts an attractive, quite forward orange peel, lanolin and apricot-scented bouquet that is certainly well defined. Like before, just give it a few swirls and that peachy nose unfurls. The palate is well balanced but I find it here just a little pinched on the entry. The finish is linear but full of citrus fruit and bitter orange to savor. I was just expecting more persistence but otherwise this is very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Darker than most. Very heady with lots of glucose richness. Heavy and satisfying with great weight. Some crème brûlée element. Edgy. Well done but with a dangerous edge. Still quite chewy. One of the fatter 2001s. *Good Value* 17.5/20 Inner quote mark (3/2011)

K&L Notes

13.7% alcohol and 119 grams of sugar. Very golden in color, intense honey and rich aromas, great balance, complexity and depth. This wine was a favorite of the K&L staff.
