If you're like me and feel your sweet tooth turning cartwheels in your mouth when you look at a bottle of Sauternes, well this one will really get you going. No stranger to Private Offer, Guiraud is among my favorites. The 2011 ranked #12 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2014, not to mention #4 Top 100 James Suckling. "This is the greatest wine ever made here," according to James. Sure do love that 2005, though... not so sure if the "greatest," but it's sure to please. The wine is as seductive as the price.

This wine has exceptional clarity, balance and freshness, with lots of spicy botrytis character. Full body, medium-sweet and a crisp finish. It’s racy and refined. What’s impressive is the intensity of noble rot that makes the wine feel almost dry. This is the greatest wine ever made here. Made from organic grapes. Try in 2017, but already delicious to drink.

99 points, James Suckling (Oct 2014)

A large-scale version, with seamlessly layered notes of almond cream, apricot, ginger, mango, piecrust, papaya and toasted hazelnut. The long, spice-infused finish shows ample depth, echoing with an enticing tarte Tatin note. Best from 2016 through 2035. 7,000 cases made.
