What Nectar!! Suduiraut 1899-2015 (March 2019)

The 2008 Suduiraut is a vintage that I have not met for several years. It might pale against the 2009 however; it offers attractive scents of dried honey, mandarin, beeswax and chamomile. It does not quite possess the harmony of other vintages. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, very pure and full of tension and gaining more cohesion towards the finish that offers notes of mandarin, spice box and pepper. It is not the most refined Suduiraut in recent years but it possesses plenty of energy. Tasted at the Suduiraut vertical at the château.
