2014 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #9
The Henri Giraud 'Fût de Chène' is a simply dazzling effort, showing wonderful elegance as well as impressive depth. As this begins opens, seductive aromas of exotic fruits, lemon zest, toasted hazelnuts, smoky minerals and white floral all come together and burst from the glass. This continues to expand on the palate with a wonderful rich texture that is beautifully balanced and focused, staying beautifully posied all the way though the beautiful finish. Just a drop-dead gorgeous bottle that can be approached now, but will also continue to evolve for years to come. Disgorged May, 2012. (Best 2014-2025) - November, 2014 (JD)
