2015 Guiraud 2015 375ml

12 x 375ml
94–96. Barrel Sample. This wine is packed with dry botrytis flavor, but also a bright freshness. Together they give an obviously sweet wine good structure as well as ripeness. The tension between the fruit and the mineral texture will allow this wine to age for many years. Read more

A stunner in 2015, this is incredibly packed with fat, juicy, ripe and over ripe honeyed apricots, vanilla custard, pineapple, honey and candied citrus. Great balance between concentration, sweetness and blazing acidity with the ability to age and evolve for decades!

Intense, with candied lemon peel, glazed yellow apple and honey notes streaming through, picking up mirabelle plum and papaya accents through the finish, which is carried by a buried racy streak. This has a good bright feel overall. Best from 2020 through 2040. 5,000 cases made.  –JM

The 2015 Guiraud has an attractive bouquet with honeysuckle, apricot, jasmine and yellow flowers on the nose that is reserved at the moment and will need some bottle age. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry with peach and tinned apricot, a fine bead of acidity with a sense of energy conveyed on the finish. This is a very approachable Guiraud and it should age well in bottle.

The lemon colored 2015 Guiraud features beautiful lime juice and lemon curd scents with paraffin and honeycomb nuances plus touches of chalk dust, ginger and candied peel. It has gorgeous tension in the mouth with tons of citrus, mineral and savory layers, finishing on a zesty note. 94+

No heavy caramel here; rather, a lot of candied citrus on the nose ranging from lemon right across to bitter orange. On the palate this is both creamy and fresh. The sweetness and alcohol are already beautifully integrated. Drink or hold (and this has at least a couple of decades of ageing potential).

The 2015 Guiraud appears to have acquired quite a bit of body during its aging. Rich and deep in the glass, but with lovely nuance, it offers tons of immediacy. Orange peel, pineapple, mint, honey, chamomile and sweet French oak notes are nicely pushed forward. Best of all, the 2015 is ready to provide pleasure with minimal cellaring.
