2012 Guiraud

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



Although there were three tries in 2012, Xavier Planty told me that all the botrytis-affected grapes were harvested in the three days period of October 29, 30 and 31, after the north-easterly wind. Nevertheless, his Guiraud has a sense of “confidence” on the nose that bodes well for the future – crisp, honeyed fruit with white peach and quince developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous, effervescent entry. It has good depth and freshness, although like others it dips at the finish where it is missing a little viscosity and persistency. There are only 600 cases produced in this year – a tiny crop. Wine Advocate.April, 2013
