James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"What a wine for the vintage, with spices and furniture wax undertones, then dried citrus fruit. Great intensity in this, powerful stuff. Perhaps the best 2005."

Wine & Spirits:

"Bright gold. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet, and yet explosively sweet with flavors of fresh nectarine, scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. The sweetness pours out of the freshness, so it's impossible to taste them apart. The flavors last, perhaps because it's the kind of wine you'll want to roll around in your mouth over and over. Glorious."

Wine Enthusiast:

"Picked over a period of eight weeks, this wine shows the class and care resulting from such efforts. Citrus and white flower aromas lead to a wine that is not overtly rich, with subtle shades of botrytis and orange marmalade flavors. The acidity is vibrant, fresh, a great balance. -RV"

Wine Spectator:

"Shows dried pineapple, honey, pear, caramel and piecrust aromas. Full-bodied and very sweet, with spice, coconut, tropical fruit and apple tart flavors. Long and dense, yet lively. Best after 2013. 6,500 cases made. - JS"

Product Description:

"Glorious" "Perfectly Balanced" "Powerful"

Words to get excited about, especially when you’re speaking about a reference point Sauternes producer at an unbeatable price for full-sized 750ml bottles!

Chateau Suduiraut is a Premier Cru Classe producer from Sauternes, and amazed James Suckling (97 points) for its "great intensity", not to mention Wine & Spirits, whose 96 point review raved about this cuvee's "perfectly balanced, explosive, glorious" effort.

The wine is in stock and ready for your order, but inventory is extremely limited. Act now!

"Classed as a Premier Cru in 1855, it is made from grapes selected from the finest terroirs of the property. This wine is hand crafted at every stage of its elaboration and reveals remarkable finesse and complexity and a golden colour reminiscent of the sun that made it possible. With age the bright gold evolves to a dark amber colour.

With an extensive life-span, it powerfully and harmoniously combines fruit and floral aromas with roasted and candied notes.

Its superlative elegance comes from a match of total opposites: a voluptuous texture, mineral freshness and the heat of spices.

Chateau Suduiraut is designed for all those who enjoy sensory and emotional experiences that are both rich and full of surprises and leave a lasting memory." - Winery
