Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A prodigious effort, possibly the finest Suduiraut since 1959, the medium gold-colored 2001 offers notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, Grand Marnier, honeysuckle, and other exotic fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. With terrific acidity, a voluptuous/unctuous palate, and sweet, powerful flavors buttressed by crisp acidity, it is a phenomenal Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.

One of the most remarkable wines made at this estate over the last 30 years, the 2001 reveals notes of white flowers intermixed with honeyed peaches and tropical fruits (pineapples) along with a sweet, unctuous texture. There is tremendous freshness and definition (because of good acidity) in this seamless, full-throttle, massively endowed 2001. It appears to be a legend in the making. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
