375ml

Powered by dry botrytis, this is a wine with immense potential. It has weight, complexity and richness, all under the cloak of botrytis. To leaven the power, there is acidity, but this is certainly for aging.

Wine Profile

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.

ratings

From a blend made one month ago (in two barrels.) This has a well-defined nose, complex with touches of clear honey, acacia, hints of orange-blossom. Very well focused on the palate, with superb marriage of nervosité (from the first two tries) and the botrytis concentration of the later tries. Citrus fruits, a touch of orange zest towards the finish. Not a rich, weighty, viscous Suduiraut, this is more about tension and vibrancy. An understated Suduiraut for the vintage but well-crafted. Drink 2010-2030. Tasted April 2008.

tasting notes

Dried lemon and floral aromas lead to loads of botrytis spice and bitter lemon peel in this young, full-bodied sweetie, with hints of lively lime and honey. Medium sweet. Very intense. Best after 2014.
