"Suduiraut is undeniably one of the great estates of Sauternes, and has been even more consistent as well as brilliant since its acquisition by AXA. Just down the road from Yquem, abutting Yquem’s vineyards on the north, is the large, beautiful estate of Suduiraut. Suduiraut can be one of the great wines of Sauternes. For example, the 1990, 1989, 1988, 1982, 1976, 1967, and 1959 are staggering examples of Suduiraut’s potential. At its best, Suduiraut turns out very rich, luscious wines that in blind tasting can be confused with Yquem…"

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. Drink 2014-2034.
