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 not to drink now because it's so luscious and rich. Best after 2008. 11,665 cases made.

#23 - Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2004

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2001 Guiraud is armed with an intense, vigorous bouquet with scents of marmalade, lanolin, brown sugar and peach that blossom in the glass, the latter becoming exaggerated with continued aeration. The palate is well-balanced with citrus-fresh apricot and orange zest on the entry. It is precise and vigorous with dried mango emerging toward the tightly wound finish that suggests the ’01 would benefit from several more years ageing. This is a great success. Drink 2014-2030+ Tasted April 2013.
