Château Suduiraut 2007 | Premier Cru Classé in 1855
Château Suduiraut, Premier Cru Classé in 1855, comes from a selection of the most prestigious terroirs of the domain. 94% semillón and 6% sauvignon blanc
Aging 50% in new barrels, 50% in one-year barrels for 16 to 20 months depending on the evolution of the wine.
The 2007 Suduiraut is a Sauternes that is just beginning to "motor" as it approaches its tenth birthday. The bouquet is much more open than when I last tasted this wine in 2011, with upfront honey, lemon rind and apricot blossom aromas that pack a punch. The palate is powerful and intense, layers of honeyed fruit, crisp acidity and the Sauvignon Blanc component now giving way more to Sémillon. This is a Sauternes of width and girth and as such it deserves another decade in bottle. Just superb. Tasted July 2016.
