"The 2015 Suduiraut comes with 123 grams per liter of residual sugar, more modest than some of its Sauternes peers and 4.56 grams per liter of acidity. It has a sense of completeness on the nose already: immense clarity with wild honey and quince aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very pure botrytised fruit, very focused and one of the most intense Sauternes you will find this year. It feels long and sophisticated in the mouth yet never overpowers, never really has to put its foot right down on the accelerator. This is a wonderful Suduiraut, not quite up to the level of the ethereal 2009...although not too far off. Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points"  Wine Advocate

Brooding aromas and flavours of cedar, ginger and spring flowers. Very long, tactile and tannic finish. Will need a long time to develop fully.

Ratings
James Suckling - "A phenomenal white with dried fruits such as apricots and mangos. Masses of bortrytis spice. Full body yet agile and bright with incredible lightness and delicacy. So much cherry blossom too. Small white flowers. Medium sweet. Ginger. Great finish. Barrel Sample: 97-98 Points"
Awards
Wine Enthusiast - "Barrel Sample. Naturally rich, but with fine acidity and a lift of freshness, this is a ripe and perfumed wine. The honey and orange marmalade flavors are there along with lemon jelly and a sense of structure. It is a balanced, poised wine from a fine vintage. Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points" Wine Spectator - "A ripe, rounded style, with loads of apricot, mango and glazed peach flavors, followed by a warm tarte Tatin finish. Still a touch youthfully raw, but shows serious depth. Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points"
Other Notes
Château Suduiraut is a perfect example of 18th century architecture: noble, stately and full of light. The château is surrounded by magnificent gardens designed by Le Notre, which make the estate even more attractive. The soil is composed of sandy clay and gravel. Suduiraut is located in the commune of Preignac in the heart of the Ciron valley. The Château's privileged position fosters, from the month of September onwards, the growth of botrytis cinerea (the famous "noble rot") on the grapes. These are picked one by one in several waves. After the grapes have been pressed, the must is fermented in oak barrels for 18 to 24 months before bottling.
