Cellar/Tasting Notes This is another astonishing effort from this small estate. The 2007 is one of the sexiest, most opulent yet powerfully concentrated wines of the vintage. There is not a hard edge to be found in this voluptuously textured, deep St.-Emilion. Abundant aromas and flavors of chocolate, charcoal,..
Cellar/Tasting Notes The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore.
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, this wine, which is made under the administration of Hubert de Bouard, tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Loads of chalky minerality from limestone soils are obviously present in this wine, which has a dense purple color, a viscous, full-bodied..

ripe fruit, this is like liquid candy."
Cellar/Tasting Notes A brilliant nose here, a touch more marmaladey botrytis richness than some, with sweet oranges and pineapple, all presented in a very bright and fresh style.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "A more massive style than usual for this property (which normally produces elegant wines), the 2009 Magdelaine exhibits a classic kirsch liqueur note, but the color is more saturated, the tactile impression more full, meaty, and rich, and the wine is more loaded and dense. Filled with elegance as..
Cellar/Tasting Notes Fresh melon and green apple notes intermixed with hints of mango and pineapple, zesty acidity and subtle oak all make for a delicious, full-throttle wine.
Cellar/Tasting Notes Attractive berry, sweet tobacco and olive aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky, tight tannins and a long, refined finish.
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Incredible nose combines orange zest, pear, and stony, flinty minerality. Enters the mouth with firmness and then expands dramatically toward the back, displaying an extraordinary airiness of texture allied to outstanding energy and grip. The lemon curd and stone flavors build inexorably on the..
