Château Suau 2008 Barrel sample White (Barsac)
92-94 Barrel sample. With its big, almost dry core of botrytis, this is going to be an intense wine - many years from now. For the present, the acidity gives it some freshness, while it remains concentrated.
Château Suau 2004 Barrel sample White (Barsac)
91-93 Quite a firm, rich style, which has a pile of dry botrytis character. It shows richness but not overt sweetness, with a great layer of acidity, which gives a crisp, fresh finish.

91-93. Barrel sample. Initially this is just a seductive effort; but then its intensity and structure emerge, creating a wine of great complexity. Its botrytis character adds considerable weight.
Château Suau 2006 Barrel sample White (Barsac)
90—92 Barrel sample. Dry botrytis is the theme here, with richness rather than sweetness. Somewhere under all that dryness is acidity and flavors of sweet pears, but these are a long way off.
Château Suau 2005 Barrel sample White (Barsac)
89-91 Barrel sample. This is a finely balanced, poised wine, with fresh fruits, ripeness and a touch of lemon all coming together in potential harmony. There is wood, but it is laced with botrytis and fine, fresh flavors.
Château Suau 2012 Barrel sample White (Barsac)
86–88. Barrel sample. With a chemical aroma, this is a strange wine initially. It has some fruitiness, peach and spice flavors, but is soft with an almond and bitter aftertaste.
