1982 Chateau Suduiraut
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $62.94 (reg. $89.94)
Nothing caps off a special occasion quite like Sauternes and this is a real score for Sauternes lovers - a wine from a top chateau with 35 years of age on it offering a sublime drinking experience for the best price around!
This truly shows the mature side of Sauternes, with a beautiful deep apricot color, lots of dried fruit notes, complex elements of caramel, herbs and toasted nuts and a lengthy finish. An ideal blend of savory and sweet!
Chateau Suduiraut, one of the top estates in Sauternes, dates to 1850, and was classified as a "First Growth" in the 1855 Classification. Sauternes as a whole age wonderfully, providing tons of pleasure late into their life. If you have not tasted older Sauternes, this is a great chance to familiarize yourself, and to do so at very moderate price. In fact, this is the same price as current release and it's already been aged with perfect provenance!
The '82 Suduiraut is in a great spot right now, but this gem has plenty of life ahead. Grab what you can now, because these types of wines never hang around. Cheers!
