In 2001 winemaker Pierre Pascaud has produced a quite extraordinary wine that is a real contender for 'wine of the vintage'. With an elegant honeyed nose, this seductive, creamy, opulent wine explodes on the palate with layers upon layers of complex flavours. The sweetness and acidity are in perfect harmony and the finish is breathtaking. A real revelation. "Terrific fruit concentration and freshness on the nose...the palate is full of glorious candied fruit flavours. A complex and harmonious wine, classic Sauternes." - Decanter

Stunning wine. Wonderful balance. Barley sugar sweetness but just the right amount of freshness. A bottle in great shape served by Brian Croser who reported that the late Len Evans in his Bordeaux phase (backed by his well-heeled friend Foxy) tried to buy Ch Suduiraut - and Ch Lascombes!

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 Seelys first vintage at the estate, and while it is an excellent wine, I think he has overseen even better vintages since then.
