This vintage is simply extraordinary. With a beautiful yield, we have produced a powerful wine, very aromatic, that presents a perfect alcohol sugar acid balance and an impressive purity of botrytis. 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.

This is a bird of a different feather, with an exotic, vibrant aroma of toasted coconut, followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig, papaya, Cavaillon melon and honey. There's stunning richness and mouthfeel, with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Very impressive. Best from 2015 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 11,000 cases made.

Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Guiraud comes sashaying out of the glass with a wonderfully floral nose of jasmine and peach blossoms with an undercurrent of potpourri, dried mango, honey nut, baked pineapple and preserved ginger. The mouth is completely coated with concentrated baking spice and savory layers countering all the rich sweetness, finishing long and layered.

This is a smoky, rich wine that shows evident wood aging. This feature adds weight, though the sweetness is currently muted. It is a wine with potential intensity; the fruit and acidity will emerge in several years.
