2001 Chateau Suduiraut

There is something about the 2001 vintage in Sauternes. I feel the same thing about these wines as I do with the 1996 Vintage in Champagne. They both possess the same insane freshness which controls the botrytis overbite and the fat and oily stile. The Suduiraut has orange peel, caramel and dried apricot. The acidity is perfect – providing the mentioned fresh attack and keeping the wine vibrant. Stunning dessert wine.
