A huge success in the vintage is the 2015 Château Suduiraut and this gem goes a long way towards showing how successful the sweet wines were in 2015. Offering a massive array of orange peel, honey, marmalade, flowers, and toasted nuts, this incredible wine hits the palate with a thunderous display of opulence, richness, and length, all while staying fresh, elegant, and seamless. It has a huge mid-palate and is reminiscent of the 2003, only with more freshness and delineation.
A phenomenal white with dried fruits such as apricots and mangos. Masses of bortrytis spice. Full body yet agile and bright with incredible lightness and delicacy. So much cherry blossom too. Small white flowers. Medium sweet. Ginger. Great finish.
The 2015 Suduiraut comes with 123 grams per liter of residual sugar, more modest than some of its Sauternes peers and 4.56 grams per liter of acidity. It has a sense of completeness on the nose already: immense clarity with wild honey and quince aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very pure botrytised fruit, very focused and one of the most intense Sauternes you will find this year. It feels long and sophisticated in the mouth yet never overpowers, never really has to put its foot right down on the accelerator. This is a wonderful Suduiraut, not quite up to the level of the ethereal 2009...although not too far off. (NM)
Naturally rich, but with fine acidity and a lift of freshness, this is a ripe and perfumed wine. The honey and orange marmalade flavors are there along with lemon jelly and a sense of structure. It is a balanced, poised wine from a fine vintage. (RV)
The 2015 Suduiraut is delicate, polished and impeccably balanced from the very first taste. Scents of orange peel, candied lemon, white flowers and mint abound. Silky and nuanced, the Suduiraut captures the essence of the vintage in its restrained personality. A closing flourish of expressive floral notes rounds things out nicely. (AG)
Quite a ripe, creamy, rounded and flattering style, with loads of toasted coconut, mango, papaya and apricot flavors, this nonetheless manages to stay defined and pure, with lovely honeysuckle and bitter almond hints on the finish. One for the cellar. (JM)
Brooding aromas and flavours of cedar, ginger and spring flowers. Very long, tactile and tannic finish. Will need a long time to develop fully.
