The Guiraud 2010 seems a little more loose-knit on the nose compared to others, with lanolin and dried honey aromas gently unfurling in the glass, before revealing its mineral core – as if this wine is teasing you. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is abundant clean and pure botrytized fruit and a crisp, linear finish that is very appealing. The oak appears to have been absorbed in recent months, leaving a very accomplished Guiraud. Drink now-2035. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014

The 2010 Chateau Guiraud has fine purity and minerality on the nose, with touches of passion fruit and dried apricot, later quince joining the fray. The palate is very well-balanced with a lively entry of apricot, quince and a touch of hazelnut. The middle and finish demonstrate fine tension and a lot of freshness. Individual lots seemed to have more race than the final sample, and I suspect it will warrant a higher score once the final blend is in bottle. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011

This is developing some real power, with glazed peach and pear fruit pushed by graham and honey notes. There's lots of viscosity on the finish, but with good underlying acidity. —J.M. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sémillon. Cats and fruit on the nose. Easy with full body, really rather nice – especially after a day spent tasting reds – but probably in general I suspect this seems overpriced. jancisrobinson.com

More lactic notes than most, more intensity of yeasty undertones, very intense, great proportions, great style, great future, showing the energy of a perfectly cultivated vineyard. Drink 2018-2040. (18.5 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com

The 2010 Guiraud, with its notes of dried candied peel, dried pineapple and fresh mangoes, is a very rich and unctuous Sauternes, thick on the palate but with sufficient acidity and depth to carry the richness. With its well-layered profile and balanced freshness, this Sauternes is lovely now but will evolve into a real beauty in about 10 years time. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

Another very quiet nose with a nod to ripe citrus fruits follows onto a subdued palate with sweet fruits but more pink grapefruit than peaches and apricots and a long, fresh finish. I hope that this will open up a little as it will make a commendable contrast to some of the more overtly honeyed wines.
