International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 115

($48-$60) Medium golden yellow color. Knockout nose combines pineapple, yellow plum, marzipan, roasted herbs and resiny oak. Superconcentrated, chewy and stylish, with flavors of honey, pineapple, marzipan, vanilla, toffee and spicy oak framed and intensified by bright acidity. Impressively dense, saline wine with a very firm spine and considerable aging potential.

Darker than most. Very heady with lots of glucose richness. Heavy and satisfying with great weight. Some crème brûlée element. Edgy. Well done but with a dangerous edge. Still quite chewy. One of the fatter 2001s. QGV

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

A medium gold color is accompanied by notes of caramelized oranges, citrus, honeysuckle, creme brulee, and smoke. Full-bodied and opulent, with tremendous intensity, good acidity, and a persistent finish that lasts nearly a minute, this large-scaled, thick, heady Guiraud is one of the finest examples from this estate that I have ever tasted.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla, with hints of ripe apples. Full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard not to drink now because it's so luscious and rich.

I adore this. A real killer year for Sauternes, including the best ever 100 pointer from Yquem. Years of life in this, I'm killing the case too quickly. Consumed with poached pear and Stilton - better than strawberries and cream !

Shared with FIDO Christmas party - there are a couple of wine people... It's quite gold in color already. The nose is full of toasted oranges and honey, with a touch of apricot. The mouth is lush and like drinking straight sunlight! I wish I had another 4 or 5 of these...I feel like this has another 15 years of time for sure on it.
