Château Suduiraut 2010 reveals itself in a deep golden yellow hue, displaying the first signs of maturity with subtle amber glints.

The opulence of the vintage unfolds on the palate, presenting flavors of ripe plum, nuanced wood, and decadent candied fruit. The richness is balanced, avoiding any sense of heaviness. The smooth finish leaves a lasting impression, featuring notes of cocoa bean, ginger, and vanilla that infuse energy into the overall opulence.

Robert Parker - 93 Points

"Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Suduiraut features quite a savory nose with notes of lightly browned toast, salted almonds, nutmeg and cinnamon over a core of crème caramel, pear tart and peach cobbler. The palate is decadently sweet, concentrated and unctuous with soft acidity and a spicy finish."

Antonio Galloni - 95 Points

"The 2010 Suduiraut has an attractive bouquet with notes of Mirabelle, jasmine and saffron infusing the upfront honeyed fruit. This is no shy retiring wallflower. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, lightly spiced with a pleasant bitter note that lends tension on the finish. Good length, this is a very fine 2010 Sauternes.
