2007 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Elsewhere $80)

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* (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. *Collectibles* (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International 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 Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2007 Suduiraut was cropped at 16hl/ha. It has a similar bouquet to the bottle I last encountered in 2016. It opens gradually with scents of dried honey, apricot blossom and a touch more melted wax than I recall. The palate is very well balanced with intense botrytised fruit, a fine line of acidity, perhaps just a little drier than it was a couple of years back, though developing intriguing notes of mandarin, tangerine, white pepper and Clementine. It is drinking beautifully now although it will clearly continue to age gracefully over another two decades. 131gm/L residual sugar. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid gold. Complex, vegetal but interesting. Weight and ruffle of botrytis and strong orange peel note, proper stuff, great!! Just a little bitter citrus peel at the end. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2009)

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
