2006 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)
Very opulent, the wine has a velvet, honeyed texture. This richness translates into the flavors, which are of yellow fruits, hinting at mango with lychee spice. Its density lingers, with freshness coming through at the end.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine is medium gold in color, with a flamboyant, buttery, intensely intoxicating nose of smoked tropical fruits, especially pineapple, melted caramel, and honeyed orange. Unctuously textured, with superb, full-bodied richness, good underlying acidity, and a stunning finish, it should have 30+ years of longevity.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright medium gold. Sexy, perfumed nose offers pineapple, honey, caramel, marzipan and spicy oak. Big, rich and voluminous; one of the most unctuous wines of the vintage, with enticing, sweet flavors of exotic fruits, spices and honey. As chewy as this is, the texture maintains a distinctly refined quality. Finishes long and sweet.
Dried citrus fruit and apple crumble aromas follow through to a full, thick and intense palate, with loads of lemon curd and apple skin character. Medium sweet. Feels almost chalky. Viscous. Best after 2012
