Château Suduiraut 2006 is made from a blend of 96% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented and barrel aged for 18 months with a 50/50 split of new and one-year old barrels used. With time in cellar, this show deep golden treacle in colour. The nose reveals succulent honey, orange peel and beeswax notes. Intensely fruity on the palate with classic Botrytis characteristics of roasted apricot, mandarin orange and spices with a fresh on finish. Château Suduiraut 2006 is a delicious wine of great purity of fruit and sweetness.
“Tasted at the Sauternes 2006 ten-year on horizontal in Bordeaux. The 2006 Suduiraut has a dried pineapple, Aszu-scented bouquet that gains intensity with aeration, although it feels a little…unorthodox! It just comes across as more exotic and tropical than I was anticipating. The palate is medium-bodied with decent botrytised fruit, fresh and crisp with notes of bitter orange, honey and mandarin, quite saline on the edgy finish. Classy, very classy.” – 93 Pts, Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (Tasted May 2016)
