Château Suduiraut Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The golden yellow colour with its hints of green betrays the youth of the wine. The tight nose gradually opens up to reveal an intense bouquet of outstanding finesse with aromas of melon, mango, candied lemon, hints of white flowers and mint. It is both concentrated and very long on the palate, offering the promise of new sensations. Although it still has to come round fully, it gives an impression of complexity, strength, and elegance. The finish is crisp and fresh with hints of sultanas and mineral touches. All the work undertaken since the takeover of the estate in 1992, backed by an even more rigorous selection, finds its just reward in this magnificent bottle. A vintage to be marked with a red letter and a magnificent expression of the terroir.

A pinnacle in super-hedonistic sweet white wine. Light gold in color, with majestic aromas of citrus-blossom honey, apricot, saffron, pineapple, and a melange of other tropical fruits. Superb length and depth, with plenty of acid to keep it fresh despite its weight. Sinfully delicious dessert wine.

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.

Pale yellow-gold. Explosive nose combines fruit salad rose petal and spices with a high-toned note of candied banana. A wine of great concentration and extract with a racy sugar/acid balance that s almost painful. Chewy and urgent but not phenolic. Finishes with great palate-staining persistence. A monumental vintage for this chateau. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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... Wine Spectator.
