Decanter   94/100

This is an enjoyable, luxurious and indulgent Sauternes. It’s extremely rich, dark and concentrated – in keeping with its tiny yields (5hl/ha in 2018, of which 40% went into the grand vin) - with attractive bitter orange flavours that cleverly work to give tension where otherwise the low acidity might lose tension. 125g/l residual sugar. The harvest ended on 9 November. Drinking Window 2022 - 2040

James Suckling   97-98/100

This has lots of concentration and mushroom and spice character. Plenty of botrytis. Dense and flavorful finish. Big wine for the vintage. Five hectoliters a hectare and half went into the second wine.

Jancis Robinson   17/20

100% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Complex, almost savoury aroma of oak spice, botrytis almond paste and mealy barrel effect. On the palate, intense in flavour, powerful, spicy, more power than seduction. (JH) Drink 2025-2038

Glengarry Review   

Botrytis came very late this year, in the third week of October; this was then harvested on the 19th November. A mere 5hl/ha, with a large amount of what usually goes into Suduiraut going into the second wines. The purity of the botrytis is impressive, apricot and bitter orange. There’s lots of layers of flavour, not an unctuous style this year. This is a beautiful elegant Suduiraut. 125gm of RS, 3.8 pH.

Parker   93-95

Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The pale to medium lemon-gold colored 2018 Suduiraut comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of candied peel, warm pineapple, guava and key lime pie with hints of orange marmalade and beeswax. The palate is packed with power and richness, with mouth-coating tropical fruits and a long earth-laced finish.
