2003 1er Cru Classé Sauternes
|Grapes||Muscadelle, Sémillon, Sauv Blanc|
|Classification||1er Cru Classé|
Nose: very unctuous, opulent layers of perfumed, peachy fruit. Taste: wonderfully complex length and freshness, with beautifully balanced, concentrated, silky fruit. A great Suduiraut. Rating: ***** www.decanter.com (Nov 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This is subtle yet powerful. It's full-bodied, with loads of honey and liquorice character. Racy and refined. Sweet yet delicate. It's a very complex wine. Tight. Rating: 95-100 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator
Sauternes Premier Cru 1855 The de Suduiraut family lived on their estate in Preignac at least as far back as 1580. In the later years of the 17th Century, a dispute with the local Governor led to the château being flattened. In response, Comte Blaise de Suduiraut rebuilt in lavish manner, with gardens laid out by King Louis XIV's designer. Since the de Suduiraut's time there have been many owners, but today it is in the very capable hands of AXA Millésimes. The 92ha of vineyard are planted with 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. There is a second wine, which takes its name from a neighbouring estate that was absorbed into Suduiraut in 1831, and is called Castelnau de Suduiraut.
