2007 Suduiraut, Sauternes

SKU #1057522 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Powered by dry botrytis, this is a wine with immense potential. It has weight, complexity and richness, all under the cloak of botrytis. To leaven the power, there is acidity, but this is certainly for aging. *Cellar Selection, Best of Year 2010* (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dried lemon and floral aromas lead to loads of botrytis spice and bitter lemon peel in this young, full-bodied sweetie, with hints of lively lime and honey. Medium sweet. Very intense. *Collectible* (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

92-95 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright yellow-gold. Subdued but powerful nose offers fresh stone fruits, grapefruit zest, ginger and honey, all lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, thick and honeyed, but with superb acidity framing the flavors of mandarin orange, pineapple, honey and chalk. Finishes very long and subtle, with a saline nuance and terrific fruit penetration. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2008)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Suduiraut is a Sauternes that is just beginning to "motor" as it approaches its tenth birthday. The bouquet is much more open than when I last tasted this wine in 2011, with upfront honey, lemon rind and apricot blossom aromas that pack a punch. The palate is powerful and intense, layers of honeyed fruit, crisp acidity and the Sauvignon Blanc component now giving way more to Sémillon. This is a Sauternes of width and girth and as such it deserves another decade in bottle. Just superb. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2007 Suduiraut has a well-defined bouquet with quince, Mirabelle, orange rind and light waxy aromas. The palate is well balanced and viscous in texture with tangy marmalade on the entry, fine depth and a gorgeous tangerine, slightly peppery finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent. Inner quote mark (10/2022)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bronzy, almost burnt nose. Very sweet and a tad medicinal/cough-sweet aroma and then good clean richness but not the complexity for a really long glorious life. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2011)

A perfect 5 for value here. We sold it for over $60 and found a small parcel at a great price. A cellar selection from the Wine Enthusiest and 97 points. So lush and peachy. Will age for many more years.
Drink from 2017 to 2037
