2005 Chateau Guirand, 1st Grand Cru Classe 1855, Sauternes France
Ships to: DC, VA, CA, ID, NM, NV
Size: 750 ml
2005 year, cold nights of august and glorious sun of September give a very complex vintage. The wine is great, complex, and exuberant. It has very fine aromas of crystallized orange, exotic, mentholated, and few notes of ginger. The noble rot is very beautiful this vintage, the botrytis has a splendid purity. The finale taste is explosive, honeyed, with spices.
