    December 1, 2018 - Bel équilibre entre liqueur et acidité, très digeste. 92/100

    September 5, 2018 - Honey, orange blossom, candied apples, and boytritis on the nose. Sweet notes of melon, honey, and orange. Good acidity and good finish.

    May 18, 2018 - Bring a Very Good Bottle (Kenwood Restaurant): This Sauternes was definitely no slouch. However, I felt that it didn't show significant complexity, and time has taken some of the sweetness.

    May 17, 2018 - An Interesting Mix (The Kenwood, Mpls, MN): Deep gold color. PNP, drank a glass over 30 minutes. I thought this drank just splendidly with a delightful mix of aged beauty and complexity this really resonated for me. Caramelized sugar, orange, very honeyed, a creamy texture, pineapple, more subtle peach, plenty of sweetness still, but a lovely balance with elegance this really permeates. Loved it.

    May 7, 2018 - Nose of butterscotch, chlorine and formic acid. Tasted better than it sounds. Medium sweet. Little evidence of botrytis. Holding up but not a great Suduiraut.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) An attractive nose, honeyed, although rather one-dimensional. Little notes of barley sugar. Ripe, a little fleshy, but not particularly fresh acidity. It is a little dilute, but doesn't really have the depth and character that we would hope for. A weak vintage in my opinion.
