Reviews for 2001 Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Blend

WS 98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2004
Gorgeous aromas of honey passion fruit mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place... Gorgeous aromas of honey passion fruit mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated yet balanced and refined.

Pale yellow-gold. Explosive nose combines fruit salad rose petal and spices with a high-toned note of candied banana. A wine of great concentration and extract with a racy sugar/acid balance that's almost painful. Chewy... Pale yellow-gold. Explosive nose combines fruit salad rose petal and spices with a high-toned note of candied banana. A wine of great concentration and extract with a racy sugar/acid balance that's almost painful. Chewy and urgent but not phenolic. Finishes with great palate-staining persistence. A monumental vintage for this chateau.

The Suduiraut 2001 has an attractive bouquet of honeycomb, passion fruit and a touch of petrol that are well defined, if not as complex as more recent vintages such as the 2009. The palate is well balanced with fine citrus lemon and apricot notes. This is very harmonious and focused, although it does not quite fan out with the precocity you might expect. This was Christian Seely’s first vintage at the estate, and while it is an excellent wine, I think he has overseen even better vintages since then. - Neal Martin
