93+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Bright yellow-gold.  Deep aromas of lime, peach, quince, minerals, menthol and saffron are complicated by tangy botrytis tones.  Ripe, creamy flavors of peach, lime and lemon verbena show noteworthy sweetness and power, with harmonious acidity providing lift.  This very rich, textured wine  coats the palate with tropical fruit and mineral flavors that linger impressively on the back end, enlivened by a brisk citrus element.  This stellar Guiraud, which strikes me as being richer and deeper than the 2010, is still very young and will improve further in a good cold cellar.
