Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

The 2009 is one of the greatest wines ever produced from the estate. It has a riveting bouquet of quince, honey, pear and a touch of clarified butter that is beautifully defined, offering scents of yellow flowers with continued aeration. It is a little heavier and more intense than its peers at this stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity and immense purity. The finish offers crisp honey, quince and clementine notes laden with botrytis that is counterpoised by wonderful acidity. It possesses an unerring sense of completeness and composure that is irresistible. Bravo!

This is loaded, with gorgeous papaya, mango, yellow apple and creamed peach flavors carried by salted caramel, toasted coconut and ginger cream notes. Very long on the finish, this just sails on and on. Showing terrific range and depth, this has a long life ahead of it.

A bit reticent on the nose and very sweet indeed on the palate. Less nervy than some. All sweetness and mass rather than subtlety at the moment. Though admittedly there is some chew on the end and it is likely to develop. Long.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
