(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 1989 Vintage) Vibrant aromas of fruit salad and honey. Moderately viscous and bright in the mouth. Nicely balanced, even if there still a bit of acidity to be absorbed. Intensely flavored and youthful.
