With a great yield, we have produced a powerful wine, very aromatic, that presents a perfect alcohol-sugar-acid balance and an impressive purity of botrytis. The difference from 2009 is the cold temperature we had during August & September. That is why Château Guiraud 2010 has a spectacular balance and freshness always reinforced by 35% of Sauvignon. It presents intense aromas, hawthorn flowers, fresh fruit, with a minty note which characterizes the vintage. The feeling in mouth is magnificent, soft, but robust. The aftertaste is long. The sugar power never gives heaviness: It is the magic of natural sugars sublimated by botrytis.

Wine SpectatorA thick, unctuous style, with marzipan, dried pineapple, mango and dried guava notes leading to a good bolt of toasted almond and pie crust on the finish. A muscular, well-stuffed version that will need some time to settle in. Best from 2015 through 2030.
