Un año excepcional con intensos aromas de uvas maduras, flor de espino, fruta fresca con un toque de mentol que caracteriza la cosecha. La botritis está terriblemente allí con aromas de pimienta fresca, té negro y el lado salvaje y misterioso que exige mantenerla en la botella.

Wine Advocate-Parker : The Guiraud 2001 here did not quite deliver as it had done at the vertical tasting a couple of years previously. However, it still boasts an attractive, quite forward orange peel, lanolin and apricot-scented bouquet that is certainly well defined. Like before, just give it a few swirls and that peachy nose unfurls. The palate is well balanced but I find it here just a little pinched on the entry. The finish is linear but full of citrus fruit and bitter orange to savor. I was just expecting more persistence but otherwise this is very fine.
