    October 2, 2019 - Similar to my last bottle and drank alongside La Rame from Sainte Croix du Mont and they were poles apart, the La Rame was good, but this was class. 94 points

    September 6, 2019 - Turning golden now as it hits middle age. Strong legs as one would expect, and the usual sweet fruit of Mellon and honey and even peach on the nose. Quite a “thick” mouth feel - not quite syrupy but close. Am a big fan of this Chateaux (my wife and I visited in summer 18 just after they had sadly had a fire that destroyed a fair bit of the chateau roof.). Such good.l value for money compared to its neighbor only 1km away (yquem). However Not as interesting as the previous bottle I had earlier in the year. Still have quite a few bottles left so will see how it evolves and if it moves on to a place that is more interesting.

    August 31, 2019 - I love this. Make no mistake, this is an unctuous, candied fruit style of Sauternes. Look elsewhere if you are looking for acidity. Brown sugar, honey, and even tastes like pineapple upside down cake as mentioned earlier. Dessert in a glass.

    July 31, 2019 - Sweet stuff of course with a bitter finish. Not the best showing by this producer that I've had, but if I'm honest I had had quite a bit to drink by that point in the evening and I was suffering from palate fatigue.

    (Château Suduiraut) Great, focused apricot nose; rich, apricot and honey palate, best of the group; long finish 94+ pts.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) This has a delightfully pure character, with fine and fresh pineapple aroma, and glorious notes of honey and vanilla. It is pure, gentle, fleshy and rich. The aromatics are pleasing, the texture is the same. The acidity is rather low, as I think I noticed when tasting en primeur in April 2006, but there is plenty here that appeals to me. Very good effort.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) Pale golden hue, with a green tinge. A divine nose, steeped in honey and acacia, honeysuckle and chalky botrytis. Superb style on the palate, firm botrytis character, but with a massive wall of sweetness. Despite an acidity that is difficult to see, it seems fresh and balanced. This just needs time to integrate and open out in a more coherent, less showy manner. Excellent.
