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.

Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison.

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

This is just starting to open up, with a dried lemon, meringue, pineapple, and honey. Full and very sweet with a spicy character. Long and tangy, yummy. No need to wait -- enjoy.

Big and rich and massive. Waxy. Slightly burnt character with gorgeously rich, slightly decadent notes that somehow inspired the tasting note (perfectly spelt) antimacassar. Go figure, as they say. Very long. 18/20
