Château Suduiraut Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

$95

A prodigious effort, possibly the finest Suduiraut since 1959, the medium gold-colored 2001 offers notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, Grand Marnier, honeysuckle, and other exotic fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. With terrific acidity, a voluptuous/unctuous palate, and sweet, powerful flavors buttressed by crisp acidity, it is a phenomenal Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.

Still pretty sweet. Needs another 15 years ... Good but barely moving into any secondary nuances. This one will be good when I am dead.

This was good, though not as old as it should be, and frankly not at all a fan of the 1999, 2005 (just poor), 2009, 2010, or 2011 tasted alongside it. The 2001 was excessively rich, with very little acidity, made for immediate consumption by unrefined palates.

I just love this wine. The 2001 is in perfect shape right now. Sweet and soft and elegant. Great way to end a meal.
