Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes 2019 375ml
96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 94% Semillon and 6% Sauvignon Blanc harvested from the 17th of September to the 30th of October (three selective pickings in total), the 2019 Suduiraut is aging for 16-20 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. The alcohol came in at 14.1% with 130 grams per liter of residual sugar. Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the nose is oh-so-tantalizing with intense notes of candied ginger, beeswax, fenugreek and crystalized citrus peel over a core of pineapple upside-down cake, honey coated almonds, pink grapefruit and peach preserves with a waft of musk perfume. The rich, concentrated palate explodes with spicy fireworks in the mouth, complementing the exotic fruit and peach preserves layers, with a racy line to lend just enough lift, finishing with epic length and depth.
96 Points Wine Enthusiast
While the wine is not ultrarich in texture, it is beautifully balanced between zesty citrus and plenty of serious botrytis and honey flavors. Showing a delicious orange marmalade character, it is ready for aging.
96 Jeb Dunnuck
The flagship Sauternes, the 2019 Château Suduiraut is 94% Semillon and 6% Sauvignon Blanc brought up in 50% new French oak. A stunning bouquet of caramelized peach, orange marmalade, honey, lavender, and citrus pith gives way to a medium to full-bodied Sauternes with impressive sweetness, a rich, expansive mouthfeel, and a vibrant spine of freshness that keeps it lively and balanced.
95 James Suckling
Dried pineapple, apricot, fig and acacia honey on the nose. Some stem ginger and lemon pie, too. Sweet and luscious with dried fruit that’s layered with toast and spice. Fantastic concentration and length.
93 Wine Spectator
Clean, ripe, pure and long, showing seamless white peach, quince, ginger, almond cream and green fig flavors that glide through, ending with style, a touch of panache and a bitter almond note that echoes. A step ahead of the field in this vintage. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now.
Blend: 94% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc
