Light copper color. Extravagant, expressive aromas of tropical fruits, honey, smoked meat and grilled nuts. Thick, sweet and glyceral in the mouth (15.3% alcohol), at once honeyed and tangy. Very long and very youthful on the aftertaste. Offers considerable potential.

The evolved, medium gold color of the 1990 is prematurely advanced, raising questions about future longevity. The 1990 possesses plenty of intensity, and an unctuous, thick, juicy style, but high alcohol and coarseness kept my rating down. None of these wines offers much delineation, so cellaring should prove beneficial as they do have admirable levels of extract.

Disappointing, with one-dimensional flavor of burnt butterscotch and some pretty harsh alcohol.

dark copper tone Thick, sweet and glyceral in the mouth (15.3% alcohol), at once apricot and tangy. Very enjoyable the only lack is the finish which is not long and rather short. Otherwise a very QPR bottle of sauterne!

About This Producer


The Suduiraut family has occupied this Premier Cru estate since the 16th century. The vineyards border those of Chateau d'Yquem where just a single wing of the original chateau remains. Suduiraut began seeing success in the late 19th century when it received accolades for its innovative means of grafting French vines to American rootstock to counteract the damaging affects of Phylloxera. This pioneering solution paved the way for Suduiraut to produce wines of superior quality decades later. In 1940, Suduiraut was revitalized under the management of Pierre Pascaud. Today, the vines at the chateau consist of approximately 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Most of the wines show best after about 10 years of bottle aging. In addition to a Creme de Tete and Creme de Tete Cuvee Madame, the estate's second wine is Castelnau de Suduiraut.
