Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92-94

Full, bright yellow-gold. Discreet but ripe and rich nose offers apricot, marzipan and honey. Wonderfully plump, sweet and full, with uncommon depth and concentration to its flavors of soft ripe apricot, pineapple and spices. Offers an exhilarating combination of silky texture and sheer intensity. The nectar-like, rot-ennobled finishing flavors stain the palate and go on and on. This should evolve in bottle for three or four decades.

Cat fur on the nose, very sweet and round and pretty heavy. Lots there! Creamy and voluptuous with quite a tight finish. But waves of different crème caramel flavours on the finish too. Another dimension here!

Shows dried pineapple, honey, pear, caramel and piecrust aromas. Full-bodied and very sweet, with spice, coconut, tropical fruit and apple tart flavors. Long and dense, yet lively.

What a wine for the vintage, with spices and furniture wax undertones, then dried citrus fruit. Great intensity in this, powerful stuff. Perhaps the best 2005.

Rich, unctuous, and luxurious. Big Sauternes showing beautiful development. Bronzing yellow color. Very transparent yet syrupy & viscous. Aromas of spiced apple pie, pineapple syrup, and honey. Great balance. Wouldn't mind more acid to elevate it a bit. Unfurled, but I think it will live for a long time.

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.
