  • 2001 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey – France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes (1/4/2017)
    WIML95

    Tasted non blind. Served from 375 ml format.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of lychee, orange foam, almond and quince. Rich flavors of candied orange slices, honey and kumquat. Medium to bold acidity, full bodied. Rich and unctuous on the palate without being cloying. Could be a real stunner some day. Drink or hold but you’re definitely in no rush. Should continue to evolve in bottle for another decade if not more. (95 points)

  • 2001 Château Suduiraut – France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes (12/19/2016)
    WIMLNR

    Tasted non blind. Tasted from 375ml format.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of honeysuckle, orange rind and…dang it…TCA. The taint is every so barely detectable on the nose. Gave it a sip anyway. Flavors of honey and lemon drops. Is this really tainted? Wow. Such big flavors for a tainted wine with no sign of the taint on palate itself. Medium acidity, body seemed fine, almost full. So we’re not rating this one because it might’ve been tainted just to be safe. (NR/flawed)
