Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

95-97 WE / 94-95 JS / 93-95 VM / 94 DE / 92-94 WA / 16.5 JR

Tightly structured and with its impressive balance between sweetness and a taut texture, this wine is obviously set for some considerable aging. The dry core of botrytis balances its density and its dark marmalade flavors. This wine has a great future. Organic. - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

Spicy and intense with dried-apple, peach and some stone character. It’s medium-bodied and sweet, yet fresh and vivid. - James Suckling

This is hugely appealing. Fleshy and exotic, with saffron and cinnamon, luscious and rich in a way that is a little atypical for the signature of Guiraud - you feel the concentration of the vintage, although the necessary lift on the finish comes in through white pepper spice, fennel, white pear and passion fruit. 2020 is the 10th vintage to be certified as organic. A yield of 8.3hl/ha, fermented and aged in 90% new oak. - Jane Anson, Decanter

The 2020 Guiraud is fabulous. Usually a more opulent wine, the 2020 impresses with its translucent personality. Orange confit, apricot preserves, chamomile and dried flowers all develop in the glass. I very much like the energy here. A classy, impressive wine. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2020 Guiraud opens with enchantingly earthy notes of wild mushrooms, crushed rocks and white truffles, giving way to a core of peach tart, preserved mandarin peel and poached pears, plus wafts of lemongrass and lime leaves. The palate is suitably rich and decadent, framed by a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing long with loads of mineral and earth sparks. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

Very introvert aromatically at the moment although there is a bit of botrytis on the palate. Waxy, round texture and really pretty sweet. Lots of interest here. - Jancis Robinson
