2019 Chateau Suduiraut Pre-Arrival Offer
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 the exotic fruit and peach preserves layers, with a racy line to lend just enough lift, finishing with epic length and depth.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate
The 2019 Suduiraut is dense, powerful and creamy. Pineapple, candied orange peel, spice, chamomile and passion fruit all run through this rich yet beautifully balanced Sauternes endowed with terrific freshness and tons of class. What I like most about Suduiraut is how it delivers superb flavor intensity and yet remains light on its feet. The 2019 is a gorgeous and totally compelling wine. Tasted two times.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2019 Suduiraut was picked between 19 September and 30 October via three tries through the vines. Yields came in at just 7hl/ha after a meticulous sorting. It has a gorgeous bouquet of wild honey, quince, pineapple and passion fruit, with good levels of noble rot evident. The palate is unctuous on the entry. A powerful and intense Sauternes in the making with layers of honey, ginger and quince. You could almost describe the texture as "gloopy"! This is a superb Suduiraut with long-term potential.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Dried-lemon and white-peach aromas with hints of tart. Full-bodied and medium-sweet with lemon tart flavor and a bright finish. Delicately sweet and vivid. Spicy and dried. Botrytis set late.
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.
On the bright, yellow, tropical side of the fruit range with lemon curd, caramelized corn, butter, candied orange rind and honeyed citrus accents. Medium-bodied, and sweet, but not overly so, this can also be used to pair with spicy and savory courses as a meal accompaniment. This is a good thing because people need to open more bottles of these sweet treats.
