HALF Suduiraut, Lions de Suduiraut, Sauternes, France, 2018

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.
 

Classic marmamlade and honey notes. Delicious Sauternes for light desserts and blue cheese. Now - 2026

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
