(97-98) This has lots of concentration and mushroom and spice character. Plenty of botrytis. Dense and flavorful finish. Big wine for the vintage. Five hectoliters a hectare and half went into the second wine.

Low yields from a late harvest in Sauternes have produced a wine with an orange marmalade flavor, lined with citrus acidity and a core of rich botrytis. Made from 100% Sémillon, there is great acidic lift in this intensely rich wine.

Lovely orange blossom, honeyed apricots, white flowers, and subtle spice aromas and flavors all emerge from this full-bodied, decadent Sauternes that has a layered, pure, beautifully balanced profile. With good complexity, terrific balance, and a clean finish, it’s going to shine for 15-20 years.

The palate is packed with power and richness, with mouth-coating tropical fruits and a long earth-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

On the palate, which is where this wine needs to be, the wine is sweet, fat, ripe, palate filling and racy, with the right amount of acidity and honeyed fruit keeping everything in balance. This is the only vintage in the history of the estate made from 100% Semillon. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Suduiraut

It’s extremely rich, dark and concentrated – in keeping with its tiny yields (5hl/ha in 2018, of which 40% went into the grand vin) - with attractive bitter orange flavours that cleverly work to give tension where otherwise the low acidity might lose tension. 125g/l residual sugar. The harvest ended on 9 November. Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/france/bordeaux/cha-teau-suduiraut-sauternes-bordeaux-france-2018-29846#TVIOSpy8ipXxtvMA.99

The palate is viscous on the entry, the fruit very pure and sensual, although perhaps the growing season denied Suduiraut the ability to make a really complex and intellectual Sauternes, despite their best efforts. It is a very refined and classy Suduiraut, though not one that I feel is guaranteed a place amongst the estate's best. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, January 2019
(91-94 points) This has a fairly concentrated core of dried apricot, peach and mango flavors wrapped with almond and ginger cream notes. Ample marzipan detail coats the long finish. Drink now.
