True, it is rare that the US laws are more restrictive but, yeah, I bet there is a significant textural difference because the added sugars wouldn't have had any of the chemical changes from the breakdown and rearrangement of the botrytis influence.

Yes, but chaptalization is to boost alcohol level, not sweetness. It's usually used only in underripe vintages. But the nature of Sauternes with its dependency on botrytis means that if you're having an underripe year, then you probably don't have best botrytis conditions either
