Terrific potential and pure botrytis character to the aromas and flavors of dried mushrooms, clove-like spices and dried fruit, such as apricot and pineapple. It’s full-bodied, very long and intense with a great finish. Lively and compact with a dense but agile center-palate. ~98-99 James Suckling
The 2021 Suduiraut is breathtaking. It is also a miracle wine. Conditions nearly wiped out the entire crop. Yields were just one hectoliter per hectare. No, that is not a typo. One hectoliter per hectare harvested on one of the three picks that year. Orange confit, dried flowers, jasmine, passionfruit, ginger and light tropical accents lend tremendous character. Racy and creamy to the core, Suduiraut retains a gorgeous sense of floral lift and freshness. It's a fabulous Sauternes. ~95-97 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
There is a piddling 500 cases of the 2021 Suduiraut this year due to acute frost damage. Winemaker Pierre Montegut told me that there was a good botrytis, yet to add to their woes, there was also an attack of drosophila (vinegar flies). Those 500 cases equate to 0.9hL/ha, and incredibly, there is a second wine, picked over three tries through the vineyard! It contains 138g/L residual sugar and sports a very pure bouquet of wild honey, white peach and light quince notes. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, lightly spiced and fresh, showing ample botrytis toward the finish, which maybe just misses a little complexiyt. Fine id inevitably elusive Sauternes. ~93-95 Neal Martine, Vinous Media
