The 2015 Suduiraut has a backward bouquet that needs more encouragement from the glass than any other Sauternes. But it is worth persevering as it offers lovely waxy, dried honey and quince aromas with time. The palate is rich on the entry with spice and ginger, thickly textured but never cloying, a fair amount of oak used here but it is perfectly assimilated. Stunning. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2064

The 2015 Suduiraut was a little more backward than its fellow Sauternes after bottling, eventually opening to offer dried honey, yellow flowers, hints of quince and a subtle pressed flower scent. The palate is well balanced with a mellifluous opening, a powerful and assertive Suduiraut with layers of botrytized fruit and a captivating, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstandinga this is one of the best Sauternes in 2015.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2055
