Tasting Notes and Scores

93-95

Neal Martin

There is a piddling 500 cases of the 2021 Suduiraut this year due to acute frost damage. Winemaker Pierre Montégut told me that there was 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 complexity. Fine if inevitably elusive Sauternes. Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2022

Straw yellow colour. Complex and multi-layered with incredible balance and freshness. Intense and richly botrytised on the nose with marmalade, honey and floral notes. Palate rich and pure but matched by a line of pithy acidity that gives it balance and great length. A real elixir but beware, there’s not much to go around. (JL) 14%

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.

This is gorgeous, jumps out of the glass with its grated ginger, white fleshy pear and luscious quince, 138g/l sugar, 50% new oak. A brilliant Sauternes, this is gorgeous, just a lovely wine, but only 1hl/h yield.
