    (Chateau Suduiraut) From a half bottle. A gentle golden hue in the glass. The nose is aromatic and enticing, with clear elements of botrytis, also with oranges, apricots, vanilla, touches of gently spiced wood. There is certainly none of the volatility I noted when I last tasted this wine, although I note that this was more than three years ago now (how time flies!). The palate has a pure style, lifted and creamy, rich but defined, with almost ethereal fruit in combination with gentle but burgeoning botrytis flavour which builds greatly towards the end of the mouth. Beautiful, pure, rich and very long, this is the best showing for this wine so far, and exceeds my expectations from previous tastings. Brilliant.

    (Suduiraut) Huge almost syrupy texture but lifted by great acidity. Botrytis is there but there is also well-defined non-botrytis fruit like grapefruit, etc. Really nice.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) From a half bottle. A very appealing burnished gold hue here. The nose is dominated, for the first few hours at least, by a pungent volatile acidity, which reminds me more of Beaucastel 1995, tasted back in 2004, than any other Sauternes I have ever tasted. As this blows off - the next day in truth - it reveals some appealing botrytis character with mealy, honeyed aromas. Lovely attack on the palate, very pent up and frustrated at the moment, with plenty of texture. There is acidity there (something I noted as a concern last time) but it is simply swamped by texture, fruit and a rather brutal extract. This is a wine with stunning potential, and once past this adolescent phase this should be an absolute delight to drink. Very good indeed, but with excellent potential.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) This is really dense and compact on the nose, with powerful botrytis on the nose, alongside plenty of sweet fruit. A full, fat and rich palate. Certainly a ripe vintage, with acidity nudging towards the low side. A wonderful, plush texture though. This will develop well, and the reputation of 2001 as a great vintage remains unchallenged, but I am a little concerned by the acidity here. Needs between at least six and ten years before drinking.
