Description

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. - WS95

The nose takes time to coalesce in the glass, very pure with honey, 98 peach, Turkish Delight honeysuckle, and beeswax. The palate is beautifully balanced, still with some oak to be subsumed, but has great depth and precision. This is a confident, almost ambitious Suduiraut with great power and intensity towards the botrytis-rich, viscous finish that is endowed with great persistency. Lovely. - WA93

The Winery

Chateau Suduiraut is a perfect example of 18th century architecture: noble, stately and full of light. The chateau 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 Chateau'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.
