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

94-97 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2012

(93% semillion and 7% sauvignon; 3.7 pH; 6 g/l total acidity; 150 g/l residual sugar; 13.5% alcohol):  Bright golden yellow.  Intense, deep aromas of ripe citrus, kiwi and guava are complicated by marmaladey smoky botrytis and a touch of honeyed mango, decadent notes that are rare in 2011 Sauternes.  Very rich in the mouth, displaying extremely pure tropical fruit and acacia honey flavors that are given clarity and cut by harmonious acidith.  Finishes very long and pure, with uncanny freshness that keeps this opulent wine light on its feet.  This is far richer than most other 2011 Sauternes yet retains the vintage's freshness and crispness.  Just three tries were carried out this year and the first one was done essentially to remove dirty, unhealthy-looking grapes.  This is the best young Suduiraut of the last 15 years.
