Special Prices
 Incl. VAT & DP Incl. VAT & DPA case of 12 Bottles (75cl)
An exceptional vintage with intense aromas of ripe berries, hawthorn blossom, fresh fruit with a hint of mint that characterized the vintage. The botrytis is terribly there with scents of fresh pepper, black tea and with a mysterious wild side that permit to keep the bottle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Guiraud 2001 here did not quite deliver as it had done at the vertical tasting a couple of years previously. However, it still boasts an attractive, quite forward orange peel, lanolin and apricot-scented bouquet that is certainly well defined. Like before, just give it a few swirls and that peachy nose unfurls. The palate is well balanced but I find it here just a little pinched on the entry. The finish is linear but full of citrus fruit and bitter orange to savor. I was just expecting more persistence but otherwise this is very fine.
