2017 Chateau Suduiraut (375ml) Pre-Arrival Offer

Sauternes, Bordeaux, FRANCE
$72.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

One of the larger properties in Sauternes, Chateau Suduiraut totals 200 hectares with 92 hectares under vine. The grounds surrounding the Chateau are extremely impressive, created by the same designer as those of Versailles. Vineyard plantings are 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, with the wine maturation completed in 50% new French oak for 18-24 months. Often on the richer end, the wines are known to age extremely well. 

Other Reviews....
The 2017 Suduiraut has a compelling brininess to the nose with a core of lemon curd, lime cordial and green mango with touches of musk perfume and chalk dust. The mouth is very rich and packed with decadent layers, with just enough freshness and great length.

Unctuous, offering melon, apricot and fig notes melded together, laced with bitter orange and maple accents, with a spicy, broad finish.—J.M.

Wine Spectator

Very concentrated, this is a great wine with rich intensity and balancing acidity. Honey and lemon flavors with a dry core of botrytis give the wine great balance as well as great potential for aging. Drink from 2025.

Wine Enthusiast

The 2017 Suduiraut was picked via three tries, with 75% of the crop picked in the second tries from 4 to 15 October. The harvest finished on 19 October, one of the last in Sauternes and after Yquem. “We were touched by the frost but not in the top terroir,” winemaker Pierre Montegut told me. It is matured in around 50% new oak. It has an expressive, harmonious bouquet with dried honey, white flowers and a touch of gripe water (a children’s medicine for those in the United States. I have been informed there is no equivalent on the other side of the Atlantic). The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, well judged acidity, plenty of botrytized fruit with a long, lightly spiced finish that feels so fresh and vital. This is a superb Suduiraut from Pierre Montegut and his team.

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 Suduiraut stands out for its stunning interplay of botrytis-inflected richness and freshness. Candied orange peel, passionfruit, mint and lemon confit are some of the many notes that develop in the glass. Medium in body, with terrific freshness and energy, Suduiraut has so much to offer. Only the fruit from the last two picks made it into the Grand Vin.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

One of the finest Sauternes I was able to taste for this report was the 2017 Château Suduiraut, from an estate that was unaffected by the April frost. A rockstar blend of 94% Sémillon and 6% Sauvignon, aged in 50% new oak, it boasts a big, thrilling bouquet of orange blossom, honeysuckle, and pure botrytis-laced fruit. Seamless, incredibly polished and balanced on the palate, it has serious sweetness, yet just glides across the palate and is remarkably elegant.
