HALF Suduiraut, Lions de Suduiraut, Sauternes, France, 2015

Suduiraut is one of the historic Sauternes estates, 1er Cru Classé in the 1855 classification. Lions is made to be enjoyed young (so for example goes into just 10% new oak barrels) but is made with similar care to the grand vin: the fruit picked over five passages though the vines between 4th September and 27th October, giving a miserly yield of just 18 hectolitres per hectare.

A rich (a healthy 124 grams r.s) but forward style, from 92% Semillon and 8% Sauvignon Blanc. Tangerines and toffee. Now-2023

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
