About Chateau Suduiraut

With a lengthy history comes a list of accomplishments and triumphs. Such is the case for Chateau Suduiraut, which dates to the seventeenth century. Not only did Suduiraut achieve First Growth status in the 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac, its management pioneered the practice of grafting vines onto American rootstock to thwart the scourge of Phylloxera.

Expert Reviews

95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2004

($60-$65) Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison.

A wonderful wine, interesting nose, platters of fruit and sweet honey. Lovely long sweet finish. An outstanding wine. The only better sauterne from this vintage that I found was the Tour Blanche.

TANZER'S REVIEW UNDERSTATES THIS WINE. CLOSE TO A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. IF YOU LIKE SAUTERNES THIS IS BEST OF THE HARVEST.
