Tasted at the Sauternes 2006 ten-year on horizontal in Bordeaux. The 2006 Suduiraut has a dried pineapple, Aszu-scented bouquet that gains intensity with aeration, although it feels a little...unorthodox! It just comes across as more exotic and tropical than I was anticipating.The palate is medium-bodied with decent botrytised fruit, fresh and crisp with notes of bitter orange, honey and mandarin, quite saline on the edgy finish. Classy, very classy.
Tasted blind at Southwold '06 Bordeaux tasting. The Suduiraut is in a different league to its barrel showing when it seemed to lack a little vitality. This does not quite have the vigour of Yquem on the nose, but I think that it is rather closed at the moment but it unfurls gracefully with lanolin, beeswax, honeysuckle...but tightly coiled. The palate is viscous and waxy on the entry, good acidity, a shave of ginger, marmalade, lemon curd and apricot. It has a sensual residue of clear honey on the finish. Wonderful. Tasted January 2010.
A lot of new oak on the nose with lemon curd, apple and a touch of honey. Good definition, with scents of white flowers developing all the time. The palate is quite extrovert with moderate acidity. Honey, peach and a touch of rosewater. Lacking a little weight on the finish but there is an attractive citrus kick that lends this Suduiraut freshness and poise. Tasted March 2007.
Quite sweet and toasty on the nose. Pretty massive ripeness and an undertow of succulence. One of the few wines that is almost short of acidity(!). Big and bold and rather flashy but it does the job. Not subtle.
Bright medium gold. Sexy, perfumed nose offers pineapple, honey, caramel, marzipan and spicy oak. Big, rich and voluminous; one of the most unctuous wines of the vintage, with enticing, sweet flavors of exotic fruits, spices and honey. As chewy as this is, the texture maintains a distinctly refined quality. Finishes long and sweet.
