Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated, yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place. Stunning. *Collectables, Ranked #9 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* (JS)
Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison. (ST)
The Suduiraut 2001 has an attractive bouquet of honeycomb, passion fruit and a touch of petrol that are well defined, if not as complex as more recent vintages such as the 2009. The palate is well balanced with fine citrus lemon and apricot notes. (NM)
This is just starting to open up, with a dried lemon, meringue, pineapple, and honey. Full and very sweet with a spicy character. Long and tangy, yummy.
The brilliance of the 2001 vintage in Sauternes is apparent from the color and the classical scent of sweet William in this youthful wine. It matches the smokiness of botrytis to the nerve of acidity, in combination, they feel like an electric current running through the round, supple, honeyed nectarine flavors. Castelnau comes mainly from one sector of the estate, a different selection from Suduiraut. The finesse of the wine is already apparent, but it will need years to mellow and fulfill its potential.
Stunning wine. Wonderful balance. Barley sugar sweetness but just the right amount of freshness. A bottle in great shape served by Brian Croser who reported that the late Len Evans in his Bordeaux phase (backed by his well-heeled friend Foxy) tried to buy Ch Suduiraut - and Ch Lascombes! 19/20 points (JR)
