About this Item

1988 Sauternes
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

With a long history going as far back as the 15th century, Château Suduiraut is found in the commune of Preignac, in Sauternes, and shares a border with Château d'Yquem. In 1855, the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. Since 1992, Suduiraut has been under the same ownership as Château Pichon-Longueville and Château Petit-Village. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfil its full potential. The estate's 90 hectares of vineyards are planted with 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc.

The vineyard is situated in the heart of the Sauternes appellation, close to the famous Château d'Yquem.

Critics Ratings

‘Gold color. Loads of dried pineapple and apple, with honey and melons as well on the nose. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with lots of dried fruits on the palate. Long and lively. Almost exotic.’ - Wine Spectator, 92/100
