Powered by dry botrytis, this is a wine with immense potential. It has weight, complexity and richness, all under the cloak of botrytis. To leaven the power, there is acidity, but this is certainly for aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Dried lemon and floral aromas lead to loads of botrytis spice and bitter lemon peel in this young, full-bodied sweetie, with hints of lively lime and honey. Medium sweet. Very intense. *Collectibles* (JS)
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. (ST)
The 2007 Suduiraut was cropped at 16hl/ha. It has a similar bouquet to the bottle I last encountered in 2016. It opens gradually with scents of dried honey, apricot blossom and a touch more melted wax than I recall. The palate is very well balanced with intense botrytised fruit, a fine line of acidity, perhaps just a little drier than it was a couple of years back, though developing intriguing notes of mandarin, tangerine, white pepper and Clementine. It is drinking beautifully now although it will clearly continue to age gracefully over another two decades. 131gm/L residual sugar. (NM)
Mid gold. Complex, vegetal but interesting. Weight and ruffle of botrytis and strong orange peel note, proper stuff, great!! Just a little bitter citrus peel at the end. 18/20 points (JR)
