WS 92
Wine Spectator, April 1995
Exotically perfumed violet and rose petals burst on your palate accompanied by dried apricot lemon and honey flavors. Gorgeous and subtle glowing on the finish.

The bouquet is quite vivacious with quince and frangipane, hints of pear and crème brûlée, certainly responding to aeration. The palate has similar weight and texture to the 1990 although, there is slightly more tension here with orange rind and marmalade imparting Barsac-like notes towards the finish. It lacks the sophistication of 21st century vintages but there is joie-de-vivre here. 89gm/L residual sugar. Tasted at a private dinner in Switzerland. -- Neal Martin

The '89 is a little lighter in hue compared to the Suduiraut '90. The nose offers caramelized pear frangipane yellow flowers and a touch of quince moderate vigour at first but opening nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of bitter orange rind on the entry marmalade quince and a mandarin and dried apricot on the finish. There is good length to this Suduiraut although it misses a little breeding perhaps due to the denuding by the Creme de Tete. Tasted February 2011.
