90% Sémillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc
Note: First Growth. Premier Cru Classe in 1855. Sometimes refered to as ‘Ancien Cru du Roy’ as displayed on older labels
Tasted at the Chateau Suduiraut vertical in London. The bouquet is more Barsac in style with touches of barley sugar, grapefruit and mandarin.The palate is well balanced, reserved at first and maintaining a certain linearity and strictness from start to finish.
A beautifully balanced sauternes. With intense elegant aromas, fine apricot and pineapple, its lushness is balanced by purity and a long, almost raisiny finish. Drink 2008-30.
