Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

Along with Chateau Rieussec, the Suduiraut 2010 is a candidate for best Sauternes of the vintage. It has a wonderful bouquet with an instantaneous sense of completeness and harmony, with layers of botrytized fruit intermingling with apricot blossom, peach skin and marmalade. This is powerful, but not in your face. There is no need to be. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of botrytis here, good acidity and enormous weight on the finish. Perhaps it needs a little more tension, but otherwise this is a very impressive wine for the Sauternes vintage.

Tasted blind 4 Apr: Rich and subtle on the nose; it already feels heavy in the glass. Very big and bold. Spicy. One of the sweetest and it seems to be interesting too! Very rich for a 2010. RS 142 g/l, TA 3.8 g/l.Tasted 7 Apr: Mid pale gold. Broad and rich and fresh but with very ripe pear-juice notes. There is real weight here. Much less citrus peel than most other 2010 Sauternes. Real race. Dangerously delicious now. Long. Super clean. Medium to heavy weight. Great undertow. Long. Nervy. (Score: 18 18-35)

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.
