94 points Antonio Galloni
The 2019 S de Suduiraut Vielles Vignes is terrific. The natural intensity of these old vines and the strong presence of Semillon come through in a white that is distinguished by its creaminess and textural resonance. Citrus peel, white flowers, passionfruit and an attractive savory note linger. (2022) www.vinous.com Drink 2022-2029

The 2019 S De Suduiraut is straight-up brilliant and unquestionably ranks with the top whites in the vintage. Bright pineapple, honeysuckle, toasted spice, and chalky mineral notes all define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, vibrant, integrated acidity, and a great finish. Clean, pure, flawlessly balanced, and just a classy effort, it can be enjoyed any time over the coming 10-12 years. (2022) www.jebdunnuck.com
