2017 Guiraud, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1356362 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe, botrytized fruit currently dominates this wine with its rich concentration. It is a full and liquorous wine that will age for many years. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very fruity and layered with botrytis spice and dried-apricot and pear flavors. Full body. Very sweet with tangy acidity. There an almost sweet-and-sour undertone to this. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Guiraud is brimming with pineapple, passion fruit, spice and vanillin. Rich, structured and racy, it shows tremendous character as well as personality. Readers should expect a bold, extroverted Sauternes. I loved it. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Another rockstar Sauternes is the 2017 Château Guiraud, which has the freshness and purity of the vintage, yet ample depth and richness. Caramelized limes, citrus, and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, impeccably balanced dessert wine. Its acidity is present yet integrated, and it has a great mid-palate and a big finish, all pointing to this being a beautiful Sauternes with a long life. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Silky and concentrated, this is one of the successes of the appellation for me. It has lovely zest and zip, with touches of candied ginger and a fresh lift on the finish. It manages to give shade and light more than most in the vintage, but is just a little shorter than in some previous years. Very good quality, reminiscent of the 2009. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Guiraud opens with subtle notions of crushed rocks, wild fungi and fragrant earth leading to a profound core of orange marmalade, crystalized lemon peel, dried pineapple and paraffin wax. The rich, opulent, wonderfully exotic palate delivers soft acidity and loads of spicy sparks, finishing with great length and depth. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Mango, peach melba, gingerbread and hazelnut notes are laced with a racy streak of orange peel, giving this unctuous, forward Sauternes good energy through the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
