Winemaker Notes

S de Suduiraut Vieilles Vignes 2016 has a yellow color with glints of green, telling of a young wine. The nose reveals aromas of fresh fruit, pear and white peach, followed by spicy note. The attack is fresh, the wine has ample body and a long finish. Peach, pear and chlorophyll captivate the palate for a smooth endnote. This young vintage is already a delightful wine, with clear ageing potential.

James Suckling
This shows such density and complexity with sliced apples, hints of pineapple and minerals. Some toast, too. Medium body and lovely fruit. Gorgeous dry white.
Barrel Sample: 92-93
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 S de Suduiraut Blanc is a blend of 56% Semillon and 44% Sauvignon Blanc aged in 20% new oak for nine months. It was picked on 8 and 9 September. It has a fragrant bouquet with apple blossom and cold limestone scents, fresh and well defined. The palate is well balanced with a lively, orange zest tinged entry. There is lovely balance and freshness here with a poised, quite stony and reserved finish. There is a big difference between this and the Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Inviting, with a suave toasted brioche note leading the way for creamed pear, fig and hazelnut notes. Shows a flash of butter through the finish, with the fruit keeping pace. Not shy on toast. This will certainly have fans. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2020.

Chateau Suduiraut, France
Chateau Suduiraut  Winery Image

Château Suduiraut is acknowledged to be one of the finest Sauternes. The team at the Suduiraut estate, passionate about their work are united in the pursuit of their goal : to extract from this great vineyard one of the world's finest wines.

The history of Château Suduiraut, in Sauternes, goes back to centuries. After the total destruction of the property by the Duke d’Epernon in the 1600’s, Count Blaise de Suduiraut replanted the vineyard and restored the estate to its former glory. On 18 April 1855 the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. AXA Millésimes acquired Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate's remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfill its full potential in recent years.

One of the most important wine regions of the world, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, this relatively flat region has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, making Bordeaux an exciting French wine region to follow.

The Gironde estuary, a defining feature of Bordeaux, separates most of the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. Farther inland, where the Gironde splits into the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, the bucolic, rolling hills of the area in between, called Entre-Deux-Mers, is a source of great quality, approachable reds and whites.

The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as the region’s most famous chateaux. Merlot is important here as the perfect blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon adding plush fruit and softening Cabernet's sometimes hefty tannins. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec may also be used in the Left Bank Bordeaux wine blends.

Merlot is the principal Bordeaux wine variety of the Right Bank; Cabernet Franc adds structure and complexity to Merlot, creating wines that are concentrated, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking, compared with their Left Bank counterparts. Key appellations of the Right Bank include St. Emilion and Pomerol.

Dry and sweet Bordeaux white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling Bordeaux wines are made in the region as well.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
