"Château Guiraud presents intense aromas, hawthorn flowers, fresh fruit, with a minty note which characterizes the vintage. The feeling in the mouth is magnificent, soft, but robust. The tonic feeling of the botrytis is amplified by a great freshness. The palate echoes the aromas: the botrytis now shows them crystalized, of great precision and purity. The aftertaste is long. The sugar power never gives heaviness: it is the magic of natural sugars sublimated by botrytis." —winemaker
"This is almost formed already, with lovely mouthfeel to the ginger cream, toasted hazelnut, orange curd, flan, apricot and glazed peach flavors. Long and refined, despite some very serious power in reserve. Great showing today." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (April 2014)

"This rich wine is still developing its spice, ginger and complex fruits. The acidity is pronounced, with a fresh character that balances the full botrytis flavors." —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (March 2014)
