Château Guiraud Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

$79

This vintage is simply extraordinary. With a beautiful yield, we have produced a powerful wine, very aromatic, that present a perfect alcoholsugar- acid balance and an impressive purity of botrytis. The 35% sauvignon Guiraud speaks again and makes this wine a brilliant freshness and aerial sugars. In the mouth, we find both the pink grapefruit, lemon confit, notes of apricot, an opulence supported by a very roasted botrytis. An impeccable picking allows a wide definition of the growth and an obvious representation of the terroir of Guiraud; a tight, straight and pure wine.

The Fall Confrerie St Etienne dinner highlighting Alsatian whites alongside French and Napa reds. A delightful evening! I’ll be honest...this kind of stole the evening. It was paired alongside a pumpkin spice creme brûlée and it was an astounding pairing. Out of mag. Honeyed apricot, cashews, Mexican vanilla. Could still use another 7-10yrs away, but hard to ignore now!

A more exotic/tropical fruit profile than with 03 with a very desirable tartness.

A showstopper, especially for its price. Decadent and lush. Layers of tropical fruit, dried pineapple, dried apricot and apricot jam. Nice vein of acidity to keep it light and lively. On the finish Vietnamese coconut caramel custard, a waft of cardamom. Gorgeous.
