Tasting Notes

Score: 91Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

“Guiraud 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 flavours and texture. This huge wine avoids being overbearing because of its adequate acidity.

Score: 91Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (3), November 1998

Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 1990 has a typical oleaginous bouquet of brown sugar, lanolin, quince and dried orange peel that opens nicely during aeration. The palate is full-bodied with good botrytis levels, and suggestive scents of dried mango, spice, brown sugar and quince. There is good volume here and it puts the 1989 in the shade, though I personally prefer the precision and exuberance of the Guiraud 1988. Still, this is a very decent Guiraud that should be consumed over the next five years. Drink now-2018. Tasted April 2013.
