Tasting Note

Castelnau de Suduiraut 2016 has a pretty golden yellow colour. The nose, still a little restrained, reveals first of all aromas of exotic fruits, then one feels notes of gingerbread, candied citrus fruits, and ageing like spices and light toast. The attack is unctuous, the mouth powerful with a beautiful freshness. One finds notes of breeding and Botrytis. The finish is long on candied fruits and spices. Castelnau de Suduiraut 2016 is still very young and will reveal itself within a year or two years. To appreciate it now,  decant it for one hour before serving.

James Suckling

A perfect introduction to Sauternes, this has very nice dried-papaya and mango character, creamy richness and animating acidity that lifts the long finish beautifully. Spot on balance. The second wine of Suduiraut. Drink or hold. 92 Points, February 2019

Wine Spectator

A ripe, rounded style, with creamed peach, mango and ginger notes, backed by a hint of praline on the open-knit finish. Drink now through 2028. 89 Points, James Molesworth, January 2019

Food Pairing

Perfect match to foie gras, scallops, crème brulées and some cheeses such as Roquefort or comté.
