Outstanding, like drinking liquid gold. Lush apricot, not cloying at all. Love this wine.
Four and a half glasses
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 perfect sweet wine, best drunk chilled on a summers day
One half glass
The 1988 reveals a textbook, light gold color with a slight greenish hue. Although it does not display the weight of the 1990 or 1989, it has better acidity, high alcohol, and considerable sweetness. It is somewhat disjointed, needing time to knit together. It is impressive if its components are evaluated separately, but it is less noteworthy when reviewed from an overall perspective.

Superlively, with orange blossom, white cherry, pineapple, apricot and peach flavors all bouncing off one another. The long, piecrust-framed finish lets it all hang together nicely.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Chateau Suduiraut 6000ml
Bright golden yellow. Intense, deep aromas of ripe citrus, kiwi and guava are complicated by marmaladey smoky botrytis and a touch of honeyed mango, decadent notes that are rare in 2011 Sauternes.

The Chateau Suduiraut has a comparatively rich botrytized bouquet with dried honey pineapple and a touch of Seville orange marmalade with exquisite definition and focus. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous texture and a good level of botrytis demonstrating fine minerality and tautness. Dried mango quince and spice all interlace the focused finish which is long in the mouth. Tasted against its peers this has a higher level of intensity and focus. A superb follow-up to the sensation
Really big and rich with lots of raw date glazed pear creamed peach and fig aromas and flavors. Very lush and long but also clean and round despite its heft. -J.M. Wine Spectator.

92% semillon 8% sauvignon blanc. Aged in 50% new oak. A beautiful vibrant gold color this was one of the darker Sauternes of the tasting. Notes of citrus fresh vanilla bean and light pretty floral notes make up the bouquet. This shows a full rich mouthfeel yet it remains lithe and elegant. It shows slightly darker notes on entry with dried apricot candied ginger and a firm spicy finish. The texture and weight is impressive carrying the decadent mouthfeel of the 2009 while displaying mu
