Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 90 (2019 Mar.)

The 1971 Suduiraut must be one of the best vintages of the Seventies, vying with the 1975. It has an intense bouquet with marmalade and quince, touches of Seville orange marmalade and toffee apple, well defined if not sophisticated. The palate is well balanced and harmonious with a fine bead of acidity. It does not have the searing penetration of say, Coutet or Yquem in this vintage, but there is a sense of purpose and vitality, whilst the finish feels long if a little warm with alcohol. Very fine. 14.4% alcohol, 64gm/L residual sugar. Tasted from a bottle from my personal cellar.
