Chateau Suduiraut 2005

Chateau Suduiraut – First Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: The debate will continue for years (amongst millionaires) which is the better Suduiraut: 2005, 2009 or 2010: all in the same opulent style, yet all fiercely stamped with that Suduiraut finesse and poise. This has superb density and weight and yet enormous minerality and elegance. In barrel, I had thought it was maybe too big for its boots, but now it is slowly digesting its sweetness and the snowdrops are just beginning to push through the snow. Keep this one for 10, 20, 100 years if you can. It will become a legend.

£589.10 / case halves
