The Lamothe-Guignard 2010 has a comparatively extroverted, more generous bouquet with scents of dried honey, butterscotch, dried apricot and melted wax that becomes more cohesive in the glass. The palate has a ripe, honeyed entry with a touch of spice (shaved ginger and lemongrass) leading to a slightly clipped finish. Nevertheless, this is a creditable Lamothe-Guignard to drink over the next decade. Drink now-2024. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014

The 2010 Lamothe Guignard has a tightly wound bouquet with touches of lemon curd, spice, pear skin and light honey, good definition and freshness. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry, with good minerality, including notes of citrus lemon, pear, almond and honey. The definition and focus on the finish is accomplished with a vibrant spicy finish that is most appealing. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011

Mid copper. Real punch – almost like a Caribbean rum punch, there is clearly so much alcohol and sweetness here, plus a bit of tropical fruit. Sweetness and weight and completeness, in traditional style. Much less obviously ‘refreshing’ than most others. This is big! Chewy finish. RS 125 g/l, TA 4.5 g/l. 13.8% Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Some bitterness on the nose (linked to Sulphur Dioxide use), rich, lots of sugar, perhaps less complex and refined than some of its neighbours but really true to type and vintage, well made. Drink 2018-2030. (16 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com

There was a definite floral hint on this nose. There is very good balance here and much less astringency than has been seen elsewhere. Saying that, this wine is not complex but tropical citrus fruit, stone fruits and some blossom nicely balance out with freshness from the acidity and have good length.
