2005 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1046485 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark What a wine for the vintage, with spices and furniture wax undertones, then dried citrus fruit. Great intensity in this, powerful stuff. Perhaps the best 2005. Inner quote mark (4/2012)

96 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Bright gold. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet, and yet explosively sweet with flavors of fresh nectarine, scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. The sweetness pours out of the freshness, so it's impossible to taste them apart. The flavors last, perhaps because it's the kind of wine you'll want to roll around in your mouth over and over. Glorious. Inner quote mark (10/2008)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Château Suduiraut seemed a little out of sorts at first, although it comes together with honey, barley sugar, orange blossom and mineral scents that become more delineated as its aerates. The palate is very intense on the entry. There is a beautiful line of acidity that cuts through the viscous fruit, though the finish does not quite exude the precision of a top vintage, but still delivers that sense of class one expects from this address. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Here, the bouquet takes a while to get going, eventually settling with dried honey, quince and a touch of baking powder. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, delivering notes of orange rind, Clementine, white pepper and a slight nuttiness that becomes more conspicuous towards the finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Lightly cheesy, exciting nose. Great weight on the palate with unctuous texture and reverberation. A tad brûlée. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2017)
