    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Guiraud 2001 here did not quite deliver as it had done at the vertical tasting a couple of years previously. However, it still boasts an attractive, quite forward orange peel, lanolin and apricot-scented bouquet that is certainly well defined. Like before, just give it a few swirls and that peachy nose unfurls. The palate is well balanced but I find it here just a little pinched on the entry. The finish is linear but full of citrus fruit and bitter orange to savor. I was just expecting more persistence but otherwise this is very fine.
