SWEET WINES: MEDIUM-BODIED STYLES

Medium weight styles - CASTELNAU DE SUDUIRAUT. Sauternes, Bordeaux

2008 CASTELNAU DE SUDUIRAUT. Sauternes, Bordeaux (Half Bottle)

Bin: 918
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Sauternes is just south and east of the town of the Bordeaux. The key factor is the proximity to the river, from which the morning mists, combined with sunny afternoons, give rise to the famous 'noble rot' which concentrates the berries and gives the potential for great late-harvest sweet wine
Grape Variety: 90% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc, aged in oak for 18 months
Producer: Suduiraut has 92 hectares of vineyard at the southern end of the commune of Preignac, very close to the great D'Yquem. Now owned by insurance giant AXA and run by the brilliant Christian Seely. Castelnau is the 'second wine'
Food Match: Mid-weight sweet wine which will work best with fruit tarts or creamy desserts, but not best suited to really sticky/heavy puddings
Old Bridge Rating: The Suduiraut stye is all about elegance, luscious sweetness balanced by freshness and complexity. Although only the estate's 'second wine' this is a genuine taste of top quality Sauternes (from a great year) at a sensible price
