(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.
The ’97 Suduiraut is a golden colored wine that is slightly viscous. It has an aroma of apricots with a touch of vanilla. The wine is sweet, but not as sweet as other Sauternes I have tasted. The predominant flavor is apricots and honey with a moderate Botrytis flavor. The wine finishes slightly sweet, with fruit, however I found the flavor very subdued.
wonderful nose with a delicate but complex finish ending with bitter chocolate tones.
Decanter(1995 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Straw-gold; powerful oaky nose, wood dominating fruit now; rich, full-bodied, oaky, rounded, a lot of alcohol and rather heavy; quite good length.
