Reviews for 1989 Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - 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.

Vibrant aromas of fruit salad and honey. Moderately viscous and bright in the mouth; not nearly as powerful as the '90. Nicely balanced even if there still a bit of acidity to be absorbed. Intensely flavored and youthful.

Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. The '89 is a little lighter in hue compared to the Suduiraut '90.

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.

A beautiful light golden hue illustrates the ideal color for the age. Lovely and attractive aromas of burnt sugar dried apricots caramelized pear vanilla white flowers and a touch of quince. Very pleasantly weighted with... A beautiful light golden hue illustrates the ideal color for the age. Lovely and attractive aromas of burnt sugar dried apricots caramelized pear vanilla white flowers and a touch of quince. Very pleasantly weighted with a rich texture that refrains from being overbearing or clumsy. Good complexity with a delineation of fruit that shows orange marmalade dried apricot quince and black tea. There is just enough residual sweetness here before finishing long and dry. This is drinking wonderfully now. Tasted out of 375ml.
