Guiraud 芝路 2007 (OWC of 12)
Price: $395 / bottle
|Classification:||1er Cru Classe|
By Robert Parker in June 2013
Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. Like one or two other 2007s, the aromatics on the Guiraud ’07 are rather subdued at the moment and they demand coaxing to offer honey, lemon curd and orange blossom. The palate is well-balanced with finer tannins than the 2006. Here, the quality of the vintage finally shows through with impressive precision and focus, building toward the fresh, feminine apricot and dried peach finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is an outstanding Guiraud, but it will reward those with patience. Drink 2017-2035. Tasted April 2013.
