More almonds on the nose. Very round, not especially complex but clean and bumptious and again with a slightly burnt undertow. Full finish, rather opulent and exciting. Already quite evolved. 18/20

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.

Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. 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... Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. 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.

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.
