Castelnau de Suduiraut Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2007
This offers up lovely aromas of smoky, spicy apricots and candied lime rind with a piercing floral note and waxy background notes of nutmeg and mace. Fairly sweet on entry, this has very good balance as the acid kicks in on the mid-palate. The flavors are deep and rich with a core of treacle edged in luscious orange marmalade, fig and caramel tones. The medium length finish offers a touch of apricot pit and honeycomb before reverting to dried orange tones. A lot of value here. 92ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Rich tropical fruits with honey on the nose. Mango, papaya and toasted golden corn flavors. Very nice, sweet, rich dessert wine.
Surprised by the value of this honey-colored wine. Aromas of pineapple, coconut, and honey. Good acidity on the palate, which tasted of pineapple dipped in honey and deepened and gained weight as the wine opened up. Very drinkable, and a no brainer at under $20/375ml. Had with cheese and fruit for dessert.
This is a medium bodied, very sweet Sauternes with good botrytis in the style of the big Suduiraut. Possibly as good as the first wine, this one offers an amazing price/quality! Not your average desert wine!
This always has absolutely rave reviews from our customers, and is one of my personal favourites. At £10.95 per bottle it is a real bargain! http://www.fromvineyardsdirect.com/wine/suduiraut.php

The apple does not fall far from the tree with 2003 Castelnau de Suduiraut. In fact it resembles the Grand Vin (Cheateau Suduiraut) to a great degree. Beautiful 24k gold color with a light orange/ golden rim. Notes of botrytis, honeyed apricot, orang... Alex Lallos. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Castelnau De Suduiraut 375ml
Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. To be honest this vintage of Suduiraut has never been thrilling and is certainly not in the same class as the 2001 or 2009 to give two examples. The nose is powerful and rich with scents of Clementine beeswax and quince that certainly pack a punch. The palate is spicy on the viscous entry with bitter orange marmalade and stem ginger although the glycerine-rich finish is missing some freshness and tension. This remains an unashamedly hedonistic Su
