Have you popped any of the 07 Sauternes? I only have Mryat for 07 but a few other vintages of Guiraud. The 2001 and 1990 Guiraud were both stunning last year.

Our group has gone through a lot of '07 Sauternes. While all have been immensely enjoyable, today I would rank them as follows:

2007 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey
2007 Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey
2007 Château de Myrat
2007 Château Doisy-Daëne
2007 Château Guiraud
2007 Château d'Arche
2007 Château Filhot

Ranging from about 91 - 95 Points.

Thanks - GREAT list! What was it about the Peyraguey's that made them top the list at this point?

I opened a 1975 Filhot before Christmas, and it exceeded expectations - not a Chateau that gets a lot of attention but very, very tasty.

My top 5 of those was CHP, LP, DD, Myrat, Guiraud.

The CHP and LP are top of the heap due to sheer complexity and better acid profile. The CHP is a little lighter nature, and has the highest perceived acid on the list, a combination which gives a real sense of freshness on the nose and palate. I found the LP to be much darker, leaning towards a dried fruit, caramel and burnt sugar profile. Both are lovely, but somewhat contrasting styles.

I have opened a few, including the Guiraud, Doisy-Védrines, Suduiraut, & Rieussec. They were all nice and surprisingly accessible, but the Guiraud was the standout for me. At $24.99 for a split, it's easily one of the best QPR whites on the market, IMO.

Thanks for the comments AML and Wine Canuck. AMLs comment is consistent with what I experienced tasting the Sauternes (except LP and CLP) at the 07 UGC. That is they fell into two categories: first were ones with big botrytis spice, clove (e.g. Doisy Daene, Coutet, Guiraud, de Fargues) and second - tropical fruit prominent, stone fruit, honey.. (e.g. Bastor Lamontagne, Tour Blanche)

It turns out I have some 2007 Coutet and Doisey Daene as well as the Mryat, but your comments lead me to think I might add some Guiraud and CHP.

EDIT: Didn't see the replies above before I responded but comments are consistent.

For me the Lafaurie-Peyraguey is superior for more complexity via creme brulee, vanilla, honey, and botrytis. Whereas some have preferred the Clos Haut-Peyraguey which was more about the upfront tropical fruit (mango, pineapple). The remainder were all very enjoyable but didn't bring the complexity and expressiveness of the top two.
