Picked over three tries through the vineyard from September 12 until October 5, the Suduiraut 2011 has 150 grams per liter residual sugar counterbalanced by a pH of 3.7. It has an intense nose, albeit one that takes time to unfurl in the glass, offering attractive notes of citrus lemon, minerals, apricot and quince suffused with great tension. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, citrus-led fruit mingling with apricot and quince. It has less bravura and ambition than the 2009 or 2010, and you might consider it a Barsac-like Suduiraut due to its racy acidity. It has wonderful focus and satisfying length, and it should drink well both early and with age. Drink 2014-2035. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

A Sauternes that grows on the palate with beautiful dried pineapple, honey and spice character. Full and compacted with a dense palate and a sweet palate. 150 grams of residual sugar. Long and very intense with so much going on. Lively. Subtle and changes all the time in the glass. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Superlively, with orange blossom, white cherry, pineapple, apricot and peach flavors all bouncing off one another. The long, piecrust-framed finish lets it all hang together nicely. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Pale gold. Fragrant, light spice, creamy lemon and a touch of pineapple. Subtle first impression. Some green fruits as well as lemon and orange-rind freshness. Vital and long and utterly clean. Rich but beautifully fresh so it seems less than its 150 g/l. Very viscous and spicy on the palate. Intense and concentrated and long. Deep too. All through there is a tension that seems to be mineral rather than fruit. Mouthwatering finish. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Opulence meets fresh acidity. Unctuous on the palate and heavier than its classic style with 150g per litre of residual sugar, but the firm acidity balances the sweetness well. A powerful wine that will age for decades. Drink 2025-2047. Decanter.com

93% Semillon and 7% Sauv Blanc. Lots of honeyed botrytis character paired with some lovely bright pineapple fruit. Despite the 150g/L residual sugar this has verve and a real sense of harmony.
