Chateau Suduiraut “Lion du Suduiraut” Sauternes
Region: Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
Winemaker : Pierre Montégut
The Lions du Suduiraut is a blend of 92% Sémillon and 8% of Sauvignon Blanc planted on the gravelly, sandy soil near the banks of the Gironde, which helps with the development of botrytis that is essential to create the unique flavours profile of Sauterns. After the fermentation the 10% of the wine ages in new oak for 14 months.
Sommelier’s Recommendation The Lions de Suduiraut is an ideal introduction to Sauternes. This wine has been specifically designed to reveal the pleasures of taste provided by Sauternes wines. The intense nose reveals notes of candied fruits, in particular apricot and melon, with hints of smokiness and minerals. Then, notes of vanilla and passion fruit emerge. The attack is round and fresh. The finish is smooth with notes of candied apricot.
