Château Guiraud’s 1996 Sauternes has aromatics reminding of peach, apricot and some orange rind. The palate has high acid, and flavours of lemon, orange rind and not a lot of botrytis. The length is between medium and long. Overall, a good Sauternes due to the length and complexity of flavours, but not a great one. The balance was just slightly out with the high acidity arguably overpowering the fruit.
Price: $70+ (half bottle)
