Chateau Suduiraut 2005, Sauternes
1er Cru Class‚ Sauternes
Christian Seely and his team have produced one of the finest Suduirauts of recent times. A tropical, honeyed peachy nose with a floral backdrop and a pale golden green colour lead you in to an extremely broad palate with tremendous definition and freshness. Terribly unctuous and opulent with a decidedly fruit cake finish. Quite lovely. Drink 2015 to 2030.
The wines of Suduiraut are luscious and rich which, in great vintages, are capable of lasting 30 years. The colour is usually rich and the wine has an alluring perfume.
Owned by the AXA insurance giant this estate is managed by Christian Seely. It is without doubt one of the greatest estates of the appellation.
