Partially aged in barrels that the year before created 1er cru Sauternes, it's intense, rich and complex and has notes of tangerine and grapefruit peel, a touch of redcurrant and a long finish.
This 2014 vintage, 91% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, is intense and fruity with fine tannins, full flavour and great ageing potential.
The nose is filled with redcurrants and tobacco, and the medium-bodied black-fruit palate is framed by melted tannins.
Taste the brilliance in notes of black fruit, cherry, plum, sweet spices and espresso.
The 2009 Castelnau de Suduiraut is a hugely intense experience, with immense, honeyed sweetness counterbalanced by an involving complexity. Great with poached pears.
A golden hued wine exudes aromas of ripe stone fruits, candied summer fruits and honey. Luxurious sweetness and spicy vanillin characters layer and coat the palate before a clean and fresh finish.
The family behind the wine also owns Château Rauzan-Gassies - a winery recognised as a 'Second Growth' in the legendary 1855 Bordeaux classification.
This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon is partially aged in oak and is structured and round, with rich black-fruit notes and a balancing acidity.
