2011 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Previously $85)

SKU #1191136 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The dried-mango and pineapple character is so delicious in this wine. It’s full-bodied and medium-sweet, with a pretty density and a fruity finish. Wonderful balance to this super Sauternes. This is a little in reserve now, with so much for the future. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A big, broad, powerful style, with piecrust, roasted almond and hazelnut cream notes framing the core of apricot, creamed peach and dried mango. Picks up extra fig and pear details through the toasty finish. Needs a bit of time to finish sorting itself out. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2014)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Heady apricot and mango nose. Concentrated and creamy, with density and weight of fruit. The oak is integrated and the wine is harmonious in a rich rather than racy style. Long. (SB) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2011 Suduiraut is one of the most delicately styled and dancing wines of the vintage in Sauternes. The deep, pure and very clean nose soars from the glass in a classically glazed mélange of bee pollen, pear, fresh pineapple, honeycomb, chalky soil tones, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very pure and crisp, with very good mid-palate depth, fine focus and balance and a very long, light on its feet and complex finish. I really like the elegant style and shape of the 2011 Suduiraut. (JG) 93+ Inner quote mark (4/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very fresh and strongly fruity, with just the right amount of dry botrytis, this is already approachable. However that botrytis does promise aging, with peach and ripe orange flavors pushing forward. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Divine vanilla and mixed-peel aromas, cinnamon and saffron. Rare yet generous, with burnt sugar and blossom on the finish. Not at all heavy, but loads of sweetness. Lemon fruit gives zingy persistence. Not the most botrytic of styles – eg not mushroomy – but there is a touch of soy savoury character too. 18/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (11/2021)
