Tasting Notes

From a blend made one month ago (in two barrels.) This has a well-defined nose, complex with touches of clear honey, acacia, hints of orange-blossom. Very well focused on the palate, with superb marriage of nervosité (from the first two tries) and the botrytis concentration of the later tries. Citrus fruits, a touch of orange zest towards the finish. Not a rich, weighty, viscous Suduiraut, this is more about tension and vibrancy. An understated Suduiraut for the vintage but well-crafted. Drink 2010-2030. Tasted April 2008

Score: 91/93Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (176), May 2008

Solid baby sticky, with a core of apple pie, honey and spicy fruit on the palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with medium sweetness and a lively finish. 92-95

Score: 92/96James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2008

(90% semillon with 10% sauvignon blanc) Bright yellow-gold. Subdued but powerful nose offers fresh stone fruits, grapefruit zest, ginger and honey, all lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, thick and honeyed, but with superb acidity framing the flavors of mandarin orange, pineapple, honey and chalk. Finishes very long and subtle, with a saline nuance and terrific fruit penetration. A good bit of the estate's sauvignon blanc went into the dry S de Suduiraut in '07, noted managing director Christian Seely.

Score: 92/95Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, July 2008

A racy mix of lime and tropical fruits give a lovely fragrance on the nose. The palate has lots of charm, floral at the start with lush apricot, peach and candied peel fleshing out the middle. There is weight to the finish, the sweetness beautifully balanced by lemon peel.

Score: 89/93Derek Smedley MW, April 2008

A wine marked by its purity, freshness and honeyed, unctuous flavour as well as searing freshness and length. It has the breed of a great wine. 5 stars.

Score: 19Decanter Magazine, Decanter.com

Green gold. Muted, almost dry nose. Very sweet start though a little on the hot barley sugar side rather than wonderfully fine and nuanced. A bit sugary. Astringent finish but massive sugar levels even if not fine. Chewy end. Gone for bust! Not quite as fine at this stage as I have come to expect of this property
