Copper gold with an evolved nose expressing mature notes of mushrooms & earth around a not particularly dense core of citrus and stone fruit. Rich and middleweight with bright acidity standing out of fruit intensity and body. Reveals some complexity but offers some generally unpleasant bitters flavours while still has edges. Dont see it going further up. Keep for another 4-5 years.
Delicious Sauternes, paired nicely with strawberry tiramsu dessert and rocquefort / gorgonzola. Dark apricot color, clear and delineated nose of dried peaches, apricots, honeycomb, orange zest, reflected on the palate with nice acidity, balanced sweetness, hints of mintyness and an ok finish. Very enjoyable.

(Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) A lovely, quite evocative nose here. Plenty of rôti botrytis in evidence, with aromas of honey, honeysuckle and a fruit curd richness. A lovely weight, fat and creamy, textured and very stylish, being balanced out by a strong vein of acidity. Impressive structure and plenty of potential for the cellar here. A under-rated vintage for Sauternes, I think, as revealed by a gradually climbing score here (and for some other wines).
(Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) In contrast this wine has a lovely depth, showing great concentration and a rich, fabulous bouquet. Creamy-oily lusciously full texture, with smoky, rôti fruit complexity, all cut through by some superb acidity which gives the wine some freshness. Deeply opulent, and a meaty finish. This is really impressive.
(Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) An obvious family resemblance on the nose. Some good botrytis too. This has a lovely palate. It has gentle, pure, honeyed fruit, with a slight toffee edge. Rounded, structured, with good acidity. This needs five years at least before broaching but will drink sooner than the other two wines tasted here.
