Lions De Suduiraut 2015


Lions De Suduiraut 2015 is described as a lighter, "contemporary" take on classic Sauternes; it certainly feels fresh with plenty of racy, orange citrus acidity and purity. But with its golden hue and complex flavours of honey, peaches, oranges and apricots, it's still a classically rich, lusciously sweet wine.

Christian Seely of AXA Millésimes has said that "with Lions De Suduiraut we try to select light, bright and fruity parcels of grapes with fresh citrussy elements for the blend, with the aim of making a younger, more approachable Sauternes. Or more approachable by the younger." The bright gold label of Lions De Suduiraut is another break with the usually restrained Sauternes packaging, using a label which features the rampant lions of the château’s crest.

An ideal introduction to Sauternes, this wine has been specifically designed to reveal the pleasures of the appellation. With a blending style that is absolutely unique, this wine is more velvety, fresh and mineral than other wines in the Suduiraut range. It offers a more creative profile, modern and easily approachable, it is an ideal complement to any social or festive occasion or as an apéritif.

Candied orange peel with apricot and caramel. Vanilla and lots of spice on the palate in this really sweet Sauternes. Dense and long with a still slightly dense and round finish. Second wine of Suduiraut. 92 Points
