Château Guiraud 1996


Château Guiraud's 1996 Sauternes has aromatics reminding of peach, apricot and some orange rind.  The palate has high acid, and flavours of lemon, orange rind and not a lot of botrytis.  The length is between medium and long.  Overall, a good Sauternes due to the length and complexity of flavours, but not a great one.  The balance was just slightly out with the high acidity arguably overpowering the fruit.  Good
