1989 Guiraud


86Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. To be honest, the 1989 is not as expressive as the 1988 on the nose, but it develops an attractive Aszu-like scent with aeration with a touch of chlorophyll. The palate is well-balanced with touches of rosewater and dried apricot on the entry. Somewhat surprisingly, this is quite a simple Sauternes wine and the 1988 shows superior tension and vigor. This is an acceptable Guiraud but to cut to the chase, it ought to be better. Drink now-2017. Tasted April 2013. Jun 2013, www.robertparker.com
