Chateau Guiraud 1988
Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 1988 offers the most pleasurable aromatics of the 1980s with a lifted perfumed nose of lanolin, beeswax, brown sugar and quince that all vie for attention. There is a pleasant adhesive scent and fine delineation. The palate is fresh in the mouth with crisp honeyed fruit mixed with a brown sugar and a touch of quince. Demonstrating fine precision on the finish, this is a respectable 1988 that is drinking well.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
Medium-gold color, with aromas of lemon tart, curd, piecrust and honey. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with bright acidity and a long, exciting finish. Balanced and refined.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
