    January 19, 2016 - Wonderful nose filled with sweet apricots, orange marmalade, nuts, fudge, whipped cream, browned butter and lots of saffron. Sweet on the palate with good acidity, high intensity and a long finish. Brilliant!

    November 19, 2015 - Wonderful golden brown colour. Tremendous weight with apricot, caramel, cut through with acidity. Tropical fruits and super long. Superb

    August 13, 2015 - A nice showing, but didn't sweep me off my feet. I'm not sure whether I'm just not crazy about Sauternes or if this was just an OK showing.

    March 26, 2015 - Tasted on my 50th birthday with Rieussec 99 and de Fesles 98. A fine evening! Dark golden honey colour reflected in the taste. Big caramel dark fruit kick. Long long. Not as much nuance at the back as the rieussec but the top vote on the night

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) A bright and vibrant gold. Lovely honey aromas on an elegant nose. Vibrant and full of vivacity on the palate. Textured but elegant with plenty of botrytis. Sweet fruit with a toffee edge. Delicious. This is beginning to show some evolution but will improve for years yet.
