Suduiraut Sauternes 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale to medium gold in color, the 1998 Suduiraut gives delicate lemon pastilles and lime cordial notions with peach blossoms, honeycomb and ceps in the background. Both unctuous and refreshing in the mouth, some compelling white pepper and powdered ginger notions come through on the long finish." --The Wine Advocate

The terroir of Sauternes covering 2,200 hectares, lies forty kilometres from Bordeaux between the left bank of the Garonne and the forests of the Landes. The appellation Sauternes covers the communes of Sauternes, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Barsac.

Medium yellow. Superripe honeyed aromas of exotic fruits. Concentrated and fairly unctuous with lovely peach and spice flavors shaped by ripe acids. Youthful solidly structured and firm. Finishes with a flavor of apricot liqueur and a suggestion of oak tannins. Like the Coutet this is stronger than it appeared to be from barrel last spring. 91(+?) Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Lime and honey on the nose with a touch of grapefruit. Good balance and definition on the palate with notes of pineapple/marmalade and quince. Balanced with good levels of botrytis. A fine Sauternes though surpassed by other vintages. Tasted May 2000. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
