2012, Château Guiraud, Sauternes, 12x75cl *
65% Sémillon, 35% Sauvignon
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Ideal with desserts made with yellow fruits or exotic fruits, blue cheeses, oriental and spicy cuisine (curry, Thai, Indian)
This Guiraud has a sense of "confidence" on the nose that bodes well for the future crisp, honeyed fruit with white peach and quince developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous, effervescent entry. It has good depth and freshness, although like others it dips at the finish where it is missing a little viscosity and persistency.
