The Château Suduiraut 2014 may well be one of the best Sauternes of the vintage. This year, it is a blend of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc with a healthy 145 grams per liter residual sugar and 4.5 grams per liter total acidity. It needed some coaxing on the nose so I afforded the sample five minutes of rigorous swirling. It was worth the effort as it reveals intense clear honey and mineral scents that possess exquisite definition, one of those aromatics that stop you in your tracks. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, great depth and power as it fans out in glorious fashion on the bravura finish. The phrase “It will knock your socks off” comes to mind, so wear a couple of pairs. (Apr15)
95-97 points | Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

The superb terrior, bathed in sunlight an embraced in autumn mists generously supplied by the Ciron and Garonne rivers benefits from ideal conditions for the development of noble rot. The vineyard’s 92 hectares are on a sandy soil whose stones capture the heat of the sun helping to ripen the grapes quickly. It is this unique terroir that gives the wine its outstanding opulence.
