Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Intense and luscious with ripe notes of orange peel and pineapple, the 2009 Suduiraut is our favourite Sauternes of the vintage. The palate has a wonderful depth of rich citrus and passionfruit flavours whilst a vanilla cream note adds to the broad, lush, honeyed mouthfeel. Crisp acidity adds freshness, making this an absolutely delicious Sauternes.

    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.

    (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.
