2016 Suduiraut, Sauternes

SKU #1443113 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Suduiraut is fabulous. Crème br?lée, passion fruit, tangerine peel and exotic floral notes all race out of the glass. I marvel at how Suduiraut can deliver so much flavor intensity and yet remain so gracious and classy. The 140 grams of residual sugar are very well integrated. This is such a gorgeous wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a dense wine, full of rich fruit, bitter orange and apricot. Its ripe fruit is balanced by the intense botrytis while it is also freshened by the wine's acidity. This is a great wine with a long-term future. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark As to the Sauternes, the 2016 Château Suduiraut boasts a medium gold color and a fresh, clean, beautifully perfumed bouquet of orange blossom, honeyed pineapple, and flowers, with notable botrytis, which can be lacking in a number of Sauternes in 2016. With moderate acidity, a fleshy, full-bodied texture, and loads of fruits, it’s geared more toward drinking over the coming 10-15 years than any over-the-top cellaring. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very concentrated Sauternes with a cornucopia of dried papaya, pineapple and mango, plus candied orange and tropical flowers that bowl you over. Although it stays in the background, there’s great acidity in this wine that keeps it very straight and clean, in spite of the luscious extravagance. Bright, citrusy finish. Drink or hold.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale lemon in color, the 2016 Suduiraut rocks up out of the glass with notes of honey-drizzled peaches, lime cordial and orange oil plus wafts of lanolin, pie crust and crushed rocks. The palate packs a wallop with intense flavor layers and a gorgeous texture, finishing with fantastic freshness. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is a powerful style, with a mix of creamed pear, fig, papaya and persimmon flavors liberally laced with crème brûlée and orange blossom honey notes, through a ginger-tinged finish. In line with the vintage's forward persona, but this has notably more breadth and depth than most of its peers. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Sleek pear-juice texture. Pretty peachy really with depth and polish. One of the sweeter wines with impressive intensity. Then a bit of grip on the end. Even a hint of English mustard! Bravo. Long and complex. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2018)
