2006 Suduiraut, Sauternes

SKU #1045271 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (3/2009)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (2/2009)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (6/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (3/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Toasty, agreeable nose. Sweet and round and easy. Lots of pleasure here even if not much intrigue. A little bit taut on the finish. 17/20 points. Inner quote mark (1/2010)

K&L Notes

90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. From K&L's Tasting at Pichon-Baron: "Quite deep color for such a young wine (like 1976). Comice pear and mango aromas with honey undertones. Very well-balanced. At Joanne-very rich style with fine acidity. Tons of apple and spice with clove undertones." *1/2++ From Ralph Sands: "Good fruit, very complex has all the flavors and is extremely spicy. My only 2 star Sauternes wine." And from Alex Brisoux: "Rich botrytis but less than ’05, fresh, tropical fruit with honey undertones, spicy finish. Very good!"
