Wine Advocate-Parker : Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. There is a sense of conservatism to the Guiraud 1999, but it still retains attractive scents of dried honey, marmalade and a touch of chlorine. The palate is actually better than the nose, with a lovely seam of acidity and effervescent marmalade and quince-tinged fruit that is very precise toward the long finish. The '99 should be looked back on as a success in an oft-forgotten vintage. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2013.
