    This Guiraud 2002 is elegant, rich, and very special with frangipani aromas, as well as white flower, orange, pear and citrussy zests aromas. The botrytis spices are revealed through the green tea and pepper notes. This Sauternes from Château Giraud has a nice balance between acidity and fat, and it is lingering on the mouth.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 2002 Guiraud is more reticent on the nose than the 2001 with aromas of peach skin, lime pith and wax resin, though the definition is very fine. The palate is fresh and vital on the entry with crisp acidity, plenty of fresh mango and quince flavours. It does not possess the harmony of the 2001, but the finish exudes clarity and precision that dares outshine the previous vintage. Excellent. Drink 2015-2030+ Tasted April 2013.
