Lions de Suduiraut Sauternes 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

*Wine of the Week - JancisRobinson.com, 1st January 2016* *93 points - James Suckling* With a history dating all the way back to 1580, the ancient Château de Suduiraut produces classic Sauternes with skill and expertise gained over its many years. 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. With a blending style that is absolutely unique, this wine is more velvety, fresh and mineral. With a more creative profile, modern and easily approachable, it is an ideal complement to any social or festive event: for happy hours, light meals, or as an aperitif. Drink now or over the next couple of years. Gunpowder and ash to start, which does blow off slowly, leaving sweet notes of apple pie. Dense, baked apple and pear, opulent and honeyed without heaviness. A slight metallic note, which adds interest rather than detracting from the whole. Orange peel. Tight, long finish. GV (good value)' Wine of the Week, 16.5/20 - JancisRobinson.com, 1st January 2016
