Petit Guiraud, Sauternes 375ml 2016France, Bordeaux
'The pale lemon colored 2016 Petit Guiraud sings of preserved lemons, pink grapefruit and marzipan with touches of allspice, chalk dust and acacia honey. The palate is quite mineral and savory in character with a lively line carrying off the long, chalky finish.' – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 90/100
