Chateau Suduiraut 2001

$250.00

 A prodigious effort, possibly the finest Suduiraut since 1959, the medium gold-colored 2001 offers notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, Grand Marnier, honeysuckle, and other exotic fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. With terrific acidity, a voluptuous/unctuous palate, and sweet, powerful flavors buttressed by crisp acidity, it is a phenomenal Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.  (6/2004) 98 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

 **Collectibles & Ranked #9 on Top 100 of 2004** Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated, yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place. Stunning.  (9/2004)

 Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison.  (8/2004) 95 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

 

 Big and rich and massive. Waxy. Slightly burnt character with gorgeously rich, slightly decadent notes that somehow inspired the tasting note (perfectly spelt) antimacassar. Go figure, as they say. Very long. (3/2012) 18/20 points, Jancis Robinson
