Ch. Suduiraut Sauternes 2007

Sweet Wine from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 01-Oct-2012
200 ha, 92 ha under vine. 90% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc, 25 y.o. on average. 18-24 months in 50% new oak. Bright, light golden-yellow colour, pale on edge. This has very ripe citrus fruit aromas along with plenty of marmalade, apricot and waxiness, showing Semillon fruit and botrytis. The oak nuttiness is well-balanced and the wine exudes a fine opulence. Very rich and sweet, this is very fine featured and tightly concentrated on palate, but has excellent depth and weighty presence. The acidity is lively, providing excellent energy and tension, and a degree of firmness and drive. This is a complete wine, and has a very long and sustained finish, the oak becoming somewhat more prominent. A wine for 15 years of cellaring. 19.5-/20 Sep 2012 RRP $250.00 1er Cru, 92 ha, 90% Se, 10% Sa. Bright, light golden-yellow colour, this has a fine, concentrated and intense bouquet of ripe, waxy Semillon fruit complexed by restrained marmalade and honey-like botrytis. The oaking is perfect and subtle, and the aromatics are lifted by a touch of volatility, all correct and in harmony. Very sweet, the palate features a rich core and weight from excellent fruit. The componentry is very well-balanced and the wine shows real integration. Fine, slippery acidity adds to the lusciousness and length. 10+ years.  19.0-/20 Jun 2011
