Wine Description

An elegant and racy Guiraud, with pretty aromas of pineapple, melon and spice. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with an intense, spicy botrytis finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Pale orange-gold. Vibrant aromas of tangerine, pineapple, coconut and brown spices, with a slightly roasted botrytis character. Concentrated and lightly saline, with bright, firm acidity giving a penetrating quality to the pineapple and spice flavors. Offers an exhilarating sugar/acid balance and finishes with lovely lingering spicy perfume. Still a bit youthfully rigid: I'd give this a few years to harmonize. Lafaurie-Peyraguey. - International Wine Cellar
