Chateau Suduiraut 2002

Chateau Suduiraut – First Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: Here is a 2002 that is ageing remarkably slowly, still on its young, rather Loirey Northern kind of fruit, tensile and fine in complexity of flavours, but with a lovely full, satisfyingly sweeter finish than most ‘02s…and this is maybe what is preserving it in its youthful form. Somehow this cooler vintage allies with the tighter fruit style of the estate. The best 02?
