1971 Suduiraut, Sauternes

SKU #970122 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. Lucid colour in the glass, the ’71 has a powerful bouquet with very fine delineation: heady aromas of marmalade, quince, a touch of marzipan and roasted almond. The palate is very well defined with a smooth, harmonious texture; notes of Clementine and quince. I suggest that it does not have the profundity of either Chateaux Coutet or Yquem, but it has bravura about it, tipping over towards the slightly alcoholic finish. This is still drinking very well.

K&L Notes

A Five Star vintage from Michael Broadbent, who wrote: "An excellent Sauternes vintage thanks to a pleasant, sunny summer, ideal ripening conditions, and botrytis." (Vintage Wine, 11/2002)

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
