Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Blend 2003
Wonderful Sticky!

90% Semillion Grapefruity, grassy nose initially, very surprizing. It turned to the normal, pleasent mix of tropical fruits and saffron. Very tropical in the mouth. Passionfruit, melon and a bit of botrytis. Sauternes is my favorite type of wine, this was the best Sauternes I've ever had. Outstanding wine.

popped the cork on this beauty (RP95) last night after dinner.  it was at about 60 degrees (fresh from the wine cellar) and not overly chilled.  the aromatics exploded out of the glass...peach, honeysuckle, a hint of brown molasses.  the wine is golden in colour (it's still very young at only 4 vintage years old).  the aromatics did not disappoint on the palate.  this is an unctious wine-very luxurious and almost decadent in the mouth.  the honey and molasses were there, without question, along with a myriad of other succulent froot flavours.  the wine coated my mouth for what felt like forever.  it's a lot richer and thicker than you might expect. 

5 stars, no question

Extremely rich, plush Sauternes
Score: 94 points
Drink by: 8 to 12 years
Amazingly rich, ripe, and full. Great botrytis and sufficient balancing acid, but this comes across as very big and plush. Quite accessible already.
