"Quite a ripe, creamy, rounded and flattering style, with loads of toasted coconut, mango, papaya and apricot flavors, this nonetheless manages to stay defined and pure, with lovely honeysuckle and bitter almond hints on the finish. One for the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2040. 6,417 cases made. -JM " (WS)

"The 2015 Suduiraut comes with 123 grams per liter of residual sugar, more modest than some of its Sauternes peers and 4.56 grams per liter of acidity. It has a sense of completeness on the nose already: immense clarity with wild honey and quince aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very pure botrytised fruit, very focused and one of the most intense Sauternes you will find this year. It feels long and sophisticated in the mouth yet never overpowers, never really has to put its foot right down on the accelerator. This is a wonderful Suduiraut, not quite up to the level of the ethereal 2009...although not too far off." (WA)

"The 2015 Suduiraut is gracious and wonderfully expressive. Floral, citrus, mint and lightly honeyed notes convey an impression of sophistication and restraint. Beautifully sketched, with terrific delineation, lift and poise, the wine whispers rather than shouts. The blend is 94% Sémillon with 6% Sauvignon." (VM)

"If you like creme brulee, then this could light your fire. Very lush and seriously concentrated, this has a lot of power. Needs some time to give its best, so better from 2020 but with several decades ahead of it." (JS)

"A huge success in the vintage is the 2015 Château Suduiraut and this gem goes a long way towards showing how successful the sweet wines were in 2015. Offering a massive array of orange peel, honey, marmalade, flowers, and toasted nuts, this incredible wine hits the palate with a thunderous display of opulence, richness, and length, all while staying fresh, elegant, and seamless. It has a huge mid-palate and is reminiscent of the 2003, only with more freshness and delineation." (JD)

"95–97. Barrel Sample. Naturally rich, but with fine acidity and a lift of freshness, this is a ripe and perfumed wine. The honey and orange marmalade flavors are there along with lemon jelly and a sense of structure. It is a balanced, poised wine from a fine vintage." (WE)

"If you are a fan of sweet wines, grab a bottle or two. This is incredibly rich, sweet and intense. But there is more than ample acidity to keep the wine taut. The vanilla custard, coconut, pineapple and over-ripe apricots all coated with a massive spoonful of honey is an intense, sweet treat. 3094 Views Tasted May 21, 2018" (JL)
