This competition closes 31st May 2021.
This competition is sponsored by one of the most famous estates of Bordeaux wines, Château Suduiraut. A Premier Cru Classé since 1855, Suduiraut is one of the great historic vineyards of Sauternes, with an exceptional terroir. Here, gravelly, sandy and clay soils capture the sun’s heat, giving the sweet wines outstanding opulence and concentration. Around 90% of the Suduiraut vineyard is planted with Sémillon, and 10% with Sauvignon Blanc.
But while the fame of Suduiraut may rest on the exceptional Botrytis-affected Grand Vin, there is a range of wines produced at the estate, both sweet and dry. This competition gives you the opportunity to own and enjoy the entire Suduiraut line-up, and each from an excellent vintage.
The Grand Vin is featured of course, from the superb 2010 vintage, but also Castelnau de Suduiraut, another luscious sweet wine that is more approachable when young, and Lions de Suduiraut, a new take on classic Sauternes style, fresh and bursting with sweet fruit and personality. Moving on, there are two examples of dry white Bordeaux from the estate. The S de Suduiraut Vieilles Vignes is made with grapes from the estate’s oldest vines, and finally, Blanc Sec de Suduiraut, mostly Semillon, oak ageing adds depth to a fresh white wine that will drink slightly earlier than the ‘S’ perhaps.

• 1 bottle of Blanc Sec de Suduiraut 2019
