Château Suduiraut Sauternes 1er Cru Classé 2008
A golden hue shimmers through the glass, glistening against the sunlight, pure gold, pure temptation.
Deep caramel and toffee notes trickle up your nose in a complete euphoria as if Christmas day and your birthday just arrived simultaneously in one combined moment. You think you're already in heaven then the taste hits - fresh honey dripping from the pot, honeysuckle and brown sugar swirled in rich caramel, love and wonder.
This is without question a stunning Sauternes and in my opinion one of the best available. An outright keeper and great vintage to set down.
