2020 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539615 97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A Sauternes with tart tartine, cooked apple and caramel. It’s full-bodied, juicy and sweet, yet there’s lots of caramel and spice, too, such as cloves. Comes across almost dry. But lots of sweetness. Pure semillon. Unique. Tiny production. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Suduiraut is 100% Sémillon this year, picked at 8.5hl/ha via four tries through the vineyard from September 16 all the way through to November 5. It has a ripe nose of dried honey, orange blossom and mango scents, plus touches of beeswax and almond. The palate is thick and viscous on the entry, then dense and powerful, with light spicy notes toward the finish. A grandiose Sauternes, very persistent, revealing a hint of white pepper on the aftertaste. Tasted from test tube sample and 75cl bottle, the latter far superior and, I would wager, much more representative. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from 100% Semillon, the 2020 Suduiraut is being aged for 16 to 20 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. It has 14% alcohol and 137 grams per liter of residual sugar. Pale to medium lemon-gold in color, aromas of pineapple upside-down cake, green mango and peach preserves tumble effortlessly out of the glass, followed by hints of honeycomb, preserved ginger and allspice. The palate is rich and decadent, delivering a seductively oily texture and just enough freshness to lift the long, spicy finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

Honey and coconut aromas. Very fat and full-bodied with some botrytis. Very sweet with acidity in the back. Quite good-in fact this is delicious-just like the 1959 was back in the day.
Drink from 2025 to 2040
