The wine's enchanting bouquet of white flowers, acacia, hawthorn blossom, lily, and tuberose are complemented by overtones of forest floor, spice, frehly-ground white pepper, tea, and saffron. Noble rot has worked its magi, and the bouquet slowly and tantalizingly reveals its full subtlety. Guiraud is deliciously bodied, rich, and velvety on the palate. The fruity flavors are combined with an inimitable botrytis and candied fruit character.
The exuberant flavors burst forth with such sensuality that one hesitates before swallowing to prolong the taste sensations. Guiraud's sweetness melts in the mouth, the aftertaste is always fresh. The initial taste impressions come through again marvellously on the finish, and the pleasure goes on and on. This is the key to understanding Guiraud. It is all about pleasure.
