89

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 79

Light copper color. Oily, pungent, expressive aroma dominated by pineapple syrup; a slightly dank quality quickly dissipated. Thick, resiny and intensely spicy in the mouth, though still rather tightly wound; deeper-pitched and honeyed, with an unusually velvety texture for this wine. Finishes slightly harsh, with a suggestion of phenolics and a bit of heat, plus a sweet note of toffee.

Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker Issue: B1

In the past, I preferred the 1988 Guiraud, followed by the 1989, and lastly, the 1990. In recent tastings the 1990 has taken first prize with its showy display of power, highly extracted, smoky, buttery, pineapple and orange-scented fruit, lavish quantities of toasty new oak, and unctuously thick, massive flavors and texture. This huge wine avoids being overbearing because of its adequate acidity. It should evolve well for 15-20 more years. Last tasted 11/94

Very ripe and deliciously sticky. Dark gold color with an amber hue. Dried apricot and orange peel aromas. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with a ginger and dried citrus finish.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. 8,000 cases made.

Abolutely fabulos Guiraud. It is a huge sauterne with low acidity and ready to drink and enjoy.
