Château Guiraud 2020, Sauternes, Premier Grand Cru Classé 

On the nose, fresh, fruity, sophisticated and offers precision, nice definition and a fine edgy side. It reveals notes of lemon, zest and more lightly pure minerality/fresh minerality combined with hints of fleshy/fresh apple, crystallized citrus as well as discreet hints of spice, verbena, peach blossom and pepper (in the background). On the palate, fruity, precise, fresh, taut, balanced and offers a juicy/mineral frame, good definition, gourmandize as well as a crystallized side, richness (in balance/mastery), a nice freshness and a certain airiness. The wine expresses notes of candied green apple, crystallized/fresh peach and more lightly fresh white berries combined with hints of lychee, berries in syrup, verbena, sweet yuzu as well as fine touches of verbena, peach blossoms and a subtle waft of acacia. Good length.
