Harvest last 8 days on a botrytis bomb. The result is an exuberant wine aroma, creaminess, where elegance is the watchword: a Baroque wine. Silky, gourming, savory, with a light sweetness. It smells like melted butter, the vanilla cream vanilla with exotic falvours. A somptuous wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. Tasting the '03 Guiraud blind, my tasting note is consistent with the bottle tasted later that day, although here there was just a slight adhesive scent that perhaps knocked a point from my score. Otherwise this is a delicious Guiraud from Xavier Plantey, albeit a vintage surpassed in more recent releases. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013.
