13.5% ABV


Category: France, Bordeaux, Château Suduiraut, 2013

“This is phenomenal with superb depth and texture. Full-bodied and very sweet, yet the bright acidity balances the wine out. Creamy mouthfeel with phenolic undertones. Great finish. This wine has a great future. Better in 2021, but already great.” 97 Points, James Suckling, February 2016

Château Suduiraut, Premier Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the great historic vineyards of Sauternes. A rigorous selection in the vineyard and in the cellars ensures the production of Château Suduiraut’s wines, which are the accomplished expression of this exceptional terroir.

Château Suduiraut is made from grapes selected from the finest terroirs of the property. This wine is handcrafted at every stage of its elaboration and reveals a remarkable complexity and a golden colour reminiscent of the sun. With age, the bright gold evolves into a dark amber colour. With an extensive life-span, it powerfully and harmoniously combines fruit and floral aromas with roasted and candied notes.


90% Sémillon – 10% Sauvignon blanc

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Soil: Gravely soil, with clay and sand –Area: 90 hectares- average age of vines: 25 years

The grapes arrive in baskets which are emptied into a modern horizontal pneumatic press. The pressing lasts much longer than that needed for dry white wine, taking four hours or more per charge and it is the richest juices which come out last. Ageing: In French oak casks for 18 to 24 months.

HVE3 and Terra Vitis certified.

Tasting Note

Green gold in colour, Château Suduiraut 2013 presents a powerful nose with tropical aromas such as mango, as well as notes of wood and spice with a touch of verbena. The palate reflects the vintage’s duality with a rich attack and smooth body, and is very generous with flavours of pineapple, star fruit and milky caramel. Tautness takes over for a fresh finish with notes of tangerine and white pepper.

The minerality which comes from the terroir, combined with the year’s intrinsic acidity, highlights the flavours and makes the finish more persistent.

Wine Spectator

This is on the exotic side of the ledger, with mouth filling ginger, mango, quince and papaya flavors that course through, backed by a singed marshmallow note on the long, unctuous finish. Approachable, but no hurry. Drink now through 2033. 94 Points – James Molesworth, March 2016

 Wine Advocate

The 2013 Suduiraut has one of the more flamboyant bouquets of the vintage, one that is actually reminiscent of de Fargues. There are copious Satsuma and dried honey scents, hints of beeswax and almond that keep your snout in the glass. The palate is very well-balanced with a viscous entry, just a touch of marmalade and quince coming through, and then blossoming toward the weighty finish that shows just a touch more oak at the moment. This is an excellent Suduiraut. 93-95 Points – Neal Martin, April 2014

Food Pairing

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