Off the charts in every sense of the word, this is a stunning, world-class sweet wine! Its incredible level of concentration is equally matched by its intense, racy character, which is the perfect frame for all its sweet, unctuous, ripe, and overripe, honey-slathered yellow, and orange tropical fruits, apricots, roasted nuts, saffron, ginger, vanilla, and caramel. This is a true legend of Sauternes that lovers of sweet wine need in their cellars. That being said, with yields of an impossible 1 hectoliter per hectare, (due to frost) every bottle you drink is a percentage of the minuscule production! So, grab this stunner fast, as it will be impossible to find in a few years. Drink from 2025-2060.

When I discovered that the yields were only 1 hectoliter per hectare, it dawned on me that I was drinking a percentage of the production! While there was almost no wine, what there was hit all the right notes. Unctuous, rich, sweet and most importantly, vibrant with its racy acidity, the ripe and overripe, spicy apricots, vanilla, honey and roasted nut aromas with their candied orange rind nuances were just what the doctor ordered on the nose and palate.

On the bright, yellow, tropical side of the fruit range with lemon curd, caramelized corn, butter, candied orange rind and honeyed citrus accents.

So young, and oh so good. With all its layers of fat, sweet, ripe and over ripe tropical fruit, apricot, nectarine, flowers, vanilla, nuts and spice, it's impossible not want a second glass. Especially after tasting its rich, concentrated layers of honey drenched fruits. There is ample freshness in the fruit that keeps this up on its feet and on your palate. Drink now, enjoy it a decade or lay it down for your kids. This is another outstanding vintage for Suduiraut that is not quite as good as the 2011, but it's close.

Just starting to show caramel, crème brulee, flowers, pineapple, apricot, honey and butterscotch aromas. On the palate, which is where this beauty really shines, the wine never quits, and that is a good thing because all that honey drenched tropical fruit tastes and feels great. Drink this sweet treat now, or age it for 20 years, it is delicious!

With an intense perfume that is equally matched with power and concentration of fat, sweet, ripe, pure, honey drenched fruit, this beautiful sweet Bordeaux wine has it all. Your palate is coated with layers of sweet yellow and orange fruits, spice, vanilla and honey. With length, purity and freshness, this blend of 93% Semillon and 7% Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious Sauternes that is worth finding and laying down. It should age and evolve for decades!

Medium bodied, lighter styled effort, with a focus on the white peach, and honeyed, tropical fruits over concentration. There is good energy here, with a soft, sweet, luscious, tropical fruit finish. But it lacks the strength and power found in the top vintages.

The nose shows off its honeysuckle, candied apricot, orange rind, pineapple, and melted caramel scents with ease. Rich, opulent, sweet, and fleshy, but the right amount of vibrance and freshness allows you to savor all the honey-coated, tropical fruits, apricots, and brown sugar on the palate. This is a truly sweet treat that is already delivering the goods. Drink from 2022-2037.

The color is slowly starting to deepen. If you love the smell of apricots and pineapple drenched in honey, you came to the right place. The wine is sweet, fresh, lively and long, leaving with you the sensation of pineapple squeezed over rocks with honey coated, apricots tossed in for good measure.

The first vintage with the new wine maker Pierre Montegut was a the product of a difficult harvest, the yields were only 5 hectoliters per hectare. Of that production, only 50% was used for the Grand Vin. Pineapple, honey, saffron, curry and burnt match notes make up the aromatics. The wine has a lemon meringue personality and a medium body that makes it a good sweet wine to pair with savory dishes.

Just a beauty, with a line of racy acidity that cuts through the fresh, ripe, incredibly sweet, pineapple, lemon curd and apricots all covered with vanilla bean and honey. There is weight and richness, but the acidity gives more than enough lift to keep everything balanced between sweet, fresh, ripe and juicy.

Intense, ripe, pure, sweet, fat, juicy, rich and fresh, with the perfect level of acidity to give the right amount of lift to the multiple layers of ripe and over ripe apricots, orange, pineapple, vanilla and nuts coated with honey.

Much darker in color than it should be, for a wine of 25 years of age, with its copper, amber hue, you'd think it was at least 20 years older. The fruit is clearly on the downhill slide. While there is some sweetness remaining, and hints of candied orange peel, but you'll find more toffee, creme brulee and butterscotch flavors than sweet, honeyed fruits. The wine requires consumption.

Fading, but with just enough gas in the tank to capture the remaining candied orange rind, marmalade, caramel, molasses, burnt sugar, and spice notes. More on the crisp, bright side, than the honeyed apricot side, this requires drinking in the near future before losing more of its honeyed fruit. Drink from 2022-2025.

Nice wine here. Orange, copper in hue, the wine was on the sweet, ripe orange, yellow peach, apricot, caramel and butterscotch side of the style range. You find a bit more lift than sweetness, with heft and complexity, the finish is a bit short, but not too short to be fun to drink. This is fully mature and requires drinking before more of the sweetness fades away.

From a 375, the color was deep gold with a bit of copper. Light in fruit and sweetness, most of the experience was focused on the secondary elements of caramel, butterscotch, orange rind, molasses and burnt sugar.

With a nose of stewed, over ripe, almost rotten apples, and a touch of marmalade, I was not looking forward to the palate.

Copper and bronze in color, the honey, caramel, molasses, candied orange peel, pineapple and apricot nose already sealed the deal. But the sweet, honeyed, tropical fruit and marmalade finish made it even better. Blind, I would have guessed this was decades younger.
