Château Guiraud Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

$85

Guiraud 2001 presents with intense aromas, hawthorn flowers, fresh fruit, with a minty note which characterizes the vintage. The botrytis is terribly here, with fresh pepper, black tea flavours and a mysterious and wild side which calls for keeping it in the bottle. The feeling on the palate is magnificent, soft, but robust.The tonic feeling of the botrytis is amplified by a great freshness. Mouth aromas strengthens up the nose : the botrytis now shows them crystallized, of great precision and purity. The finish is long.

Damn amazing wine so solid and so much flavor with a nice bit of acid paired up with Food and Wines’s apple hand pie from scratch. Stunning!

For desert, which I forgot to snap a photo, we had Jenny’s Toasted Almond Sponge Cake with Housemade Citrus Marmalade & Toasted Swiss Meringue. The 2001 Chateau Guiraud was drinking nicely but will continue to develop for another 20 years plus. Beautiful fresh & dried stone fruits; apricots, peach, orange citrus, nectarines & pineapple. Marmalade, honey, nuts with skin, lovely round acidity, beautifully soft integrated minerality and rich polished finish.

Nutty, Carmel, touch of apricot. Elegant, balanced. This wine is a superstar with our Foie Gras. Not too sweet.. And will rock the tarte tintin, coming up.

Massive, complex, honeyed nectar! This is the first time I have revisited this wine since tasting it from cask at the UGC tastings in Bordeaux in 2002. It still seems just as young! Great acidity to balance the powerful, concentrated botrytis flavors!
