WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

"Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 2004 offers milder, more well behaved aromatics than the 2003, and there is better delineation here with lifted scents of apricot blossom, marmalade and a sense of minerality that is not apparent on previous vintages. The palate is well-balanced with a fresh, viscous opening. The acidity is nicely judged and there are plenty of dried mango, marmalade and quince notes to enjoy on the harmonious finish. This is a very assured Guiraud that has an effortless quality that previous vintages did not possess. Drink now-2025.” Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
