97 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: “The 2005 Suduiraut has been a curious vintage, the bottles perhaps a little more inconsistent than ensuing years. Here, the bouquet takes a while to get going, eventually settling with dried honey, quince and a touch of baking powder. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, delivering notes of orange rind, Clementine, white pepper and a slight nuttiness that becomes more conspicuous towards the finish. To be honest, I think a better Suduiraut could have been made in this propitious growing season and three or four bottles have tasted better in the past. 163gm/L residual sugar. Tasted at the Suduiraut vertical at the château.” 04/18
94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2005 Suduiraut is such a classy wine. Crème brûlée, orange marmalade, vanilla bean, mint, apricot, honey, hazelnut and truffle lend a sense of exoticism throughout. The 2005 is unctuous but not heavy. It perhaps lacks the dimension of the very best years, but that in no way detracts from the pleasure it provides. To be perfectly frank, its hard to put the glass down." 04/21
97 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: “What a wine for the vintage, with spices and furniture wax undertones, then dried citrus fruit. Great intensity in this, powerful stuff. Perhaps the best 2005.” 04/12
