Reviews for 2011 Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Blend

WS 97
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Superlively with orange blossom white cherry pineapple apricot and peach flavors all bouncing off one another. The long piecrust-framed finish lets it all hang together nicely.-J.M.

Intense deep aromas of ripe citrus kiwi and guava are complicated by marmaladey smoky botrytis and a touch of honeyed mango decadent notes that are rare in 2011 Sauternes. Very rich in the mouth displaying extremely pure tropical fruit and acacia honey flavors that are given clarity and cut by harmonious acidith. Finishes very long and pure with uncanny freshness that keeps this opulent wine light on its feet. This is far richer than most other 2011 Sauternes yet retains the vintage's freshness and crispness. Just three tries were carried out this year and the first one was done essentially to remove dirty unhealthy-looking grapes. This is the best young Suduiraut of the last 15 years.

The dried-mango and pineapple character is so delicious in this wine. It’s full-bodied and medium-sweet, with a pretty density and a fruity finish. Wonderful balance to this super Sauternes. This is a little in reserve... The dried-mango and pineapple character is so delicious in this wine. It’s full-bodied and medium-sweet, with a pretty density and a fruity finish. Wonderful balance to this super Sauternes. This is a little in reserve now, with so much for the future. Try in 2017.

Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Suduiraut 2011 has a muffled nose at first: dried honey and quince, wet wool and marzipan scents that gradually open up with aeration. Coming back after 10 minutes there is a heartwarming gingerbread note. The palate is viscous on the entry and full of tension. There is a keen line of acidity here, quite linear at first, but it fans out nicely toward the finish and offers notes of honey, mandarin and even a touch of rhubarb! This is a class act, a Sauternes that does not need to shout about its inherent qualities. - Neal Martin

Very fresh and strongly fruity, with just the right amount of dry botrytis, this is already approachable. However that botrytis does promise aging, with peach and ripe orange flavors pushing forward.

However that botrytis does promise aging, with peach and ripe orange flavors pushing forward. Drink this attractive wine from 2019.

90% semillon 10% sauvignon blanc. Fermented in stainless steel tanks then aged in one year old barrels. Vines are planted on mixed clay sand and gravel soils on a bed of limestone. The nose shows notes of saffron vanilla... 90% semillon 10% sauvignon blanc. Fermented in stainless steel tanks then aged in one year old barrels. Vines are planted on mixed clay sand and gravel soils on a bed of limestone. The nose shows notes of saffron vanilla bean and beeswax with light touches of lemon and orange rind. On the palate displays slightly more tropical flavors of pineapple and mango with a rich round texture and good persistent acidity. Medium to full-bodied with nice spice from the botrytis and a long fresh finish. Enjoy over the next 30 years.
