What a crazy Sauternes. The density and sweetness are amazing, yet at the same time it’s fresh and bright with an inspirational energy and dryness at the end. Phenolic and textured.

Glengarry Review   

94% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon, 16hl/ha, picked in three tries. Gorgeous aromatics, lively with plenty of lemon and lime characters and a wonderful floral note. The intensity on the palate is superb with a delightful touch of toast and smoke. 140gm RS, 14% abv. The acidity is the key to this year, it’s higher than the 15 or 16 and gives the wonderful freshness that persists through to the end of this wine. A great Suduiraut for sure.

Vinous   94-96

The 2017 Suduiraut was picked via three tries, with 75% of the crop picked in the second tries from 4 to 15 October. The harvest finished on 19 October, one of the last in Sauternes and after Yquem. We were touched by the frost but not in the top terroir, winemaker Pierre Montegut told me. It is matured in around 50% new oak. It has an expressive, harmonious bouquet with dried honey, white flowers and a touch of gripe water (a children’s medicine for those in the United States. I have been informed there is no equivalent on the other side of the Atlantic). The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, well judged acidity, plenty of botrytized fruit with a long, lightly spiced finish that feels so fresh and vital. This is a superb Suduiraut from Pierre Montegut and his team.
