(From 2007 Vintage) The nose takes time to coalesce in the glass, very pure with honey, white peach, Turkish Delight honeysuckle, and beeswax. The palate is beautifully balanced, still with some oak to be subsumed, but has great depth and precision. This is a confident, almost ambitious Suduiraut with great power and intensity towards the botrytis-rich, viscous finish that is endowed with great persistency.
(From 2010 Vintage) Richly textured, with an opulent feel. Concentrated, the fruit buried in the dense flavors. It makes for a big, powerful wine, with long aging future.

Decanter(From 1979 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Gold; smoky dried-apricot nose; soft, quite rich, velvety, not especially sweet but harmonious and quite concentrated; quite good length.
