The 1959 Suduiraut is a vintage that I have been fortunate to have met three times before and mark my words, this is one of the greatest the château has ever produced. Deep amber in color, it has a striking bouquet with intense aromas of orange pith, quince jus, Clementine and beeswax that just bursts from the glass and frankly, overshadows anything produced until the 21st century. The palate is scintillating: intense and clean botrytised honeyed fruit, a razor-sharp line of acidity that keeps this on its toes. There is something so crystalline about this 1959 that it leaves you perplexed why or how the château lost that quality for so many years. It is a truly fabulous Sauternes and one of the high points of the estate. 103gm/L residual sugar and 14.9% alcohol. Tasted at a private dinner in Bordeaux.
