The Story

The wine is crafted by an exceptional technical team, with grapes grown on carefully-selected plots of our vineyard that are ideally suited to producing a dry white wine of real character, recognisably Bordeaux, but marked by the personality of our vineyard.
Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut is savoury, fresh and ready to drink with pleasure immediately, a worthy addition to the great range of wines from Château Suduiraut. Its bright aromatic express...

Vintage 2020

In Bordeaux, the heat led to early flowering. Additionally, this led to an early harvest after a very hot summer. As a starting point, there is great maturity in the grapes, and we can expect a more opulent vintage than in recent years.

Written Notes

Bright yellow colour with green hue. Aromatic nose reminiscent of candied lemon zest, honey, pineapple and hints of white blossoms. On the palate luscious citrus fruit, mild acidity, well balanced with creamy texture and very good length.

Full bottle 1,230 g. Early release of a 2020! Made from Ch Suduiraut of Sauternes' younger vines, a blend of 54% Sémillon and 46% Sauvignon Blanc picked 25 August to 2 September. 25% was aged in oak barrels (30% new). TA 3.5 g/l. 
Heady nose in which beeswax Sémillon dominates. Texture has a little hint of oaky creaminess. On the palate Sauvignon Blanc acidity and fruit make an impression. Definitely richer than a typical dry white from the Pessac-Léognan appellation nearby. Pretty smart. It may age longer than I suggest.
