Description

A bottle of 1997 Château Suduiraut from Sauternes. Suduiraut is one of the grandest Châteaux in Bordeaux, and the vineyards are planted with 90% Sémillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc.

'The 1997 Suduiraut has reached a really lovely plateau in its evolution and is drinking splendidly at age nineteen. The bouquet is deep, pure and shows lovely secondary layers of complexity in its mélange of honey, fresh apricot, oranges, crème brulée, soil tones and a gentle framing of buttery oak. With air distinctive notes of clove and marmalade blossomed as well on the nose. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and focused, with a fine core of fruit, lovely, zesty acidity and impressive length and grip on the à point finish. Just a lovely, classic vintage of Suduiraut that is just reaching its apogee, but which will continue to drink splendidly for at least a couple of decades. 92/100' John Gilman
