Why do we love this wine?

We’re reaching pretty far back in French wine history for this one. Château Suduiraut was founded in 1580, destroyed and rebuilt through various conflicts, and finally honoured with Premier Cru status in the famous 1855 Bordeaux classification. In the early 18th century when the Dutch influenced the process of harvesting grapes late with botrytis, the modern style of Sauternes was born and Suduiraut began perfecting what is their expression of this sweet wine.

Castelnau de Suduiraut is the Château’s more approachable, ‘drink now’ Sauternes. They still harvest late, but do not wait as long as with the rest of their crop. Composed of 96% semillon and 4% sauvignon blanc, the wine sees 18 months in barrel, only 15% of which are new. Like all Sauternes, this is a bright golden yellow in colour. The nose starts out restrained but opens up with candied and spiced notes once it gets a bit of air. It’s silky on the palate with flavours of melon, acacia honey and candied citrus. The finish is long and reminiscent of brown sugar and oranges. This is a delicious example of what many consider the world’s greatest sweet wine.
