Description of Chateau Suduiraut 2023

Château Suduiraut, a Premier Cru Classified in 1855, is crafted from the estate’s most prestigious terroirs. This bespoke wine is incredibly complex and beautiful, featuring a sun-kissed color that turns to amber with age. Remarkably long-lived, it boasts harmonious, powerful aromas of flowers, fruit, and candied and roasted grapes.

Vintage Conditions

  • Late Autumn and Winter (2022/2023): Abundant rainfall totaling 350 mm, 30% more than the previous year.
  • April 4 and 5: A frost episode occurred, but had limited impact due to late budburst.
  • Spring: Warm and dry, contributing to the vine’s development and excellent cluster emergence.
  • Flowering: Ideal weather conditions led to a very generous harvest potential.
  • July: Precipitation and high temperatures favored a mildew attack, which was kept under control.
  • August: Began cool and overcast, followed by warm, dry weather that perfected grape ripening.

Harvest

The harvest for the sweet wines took place between September 18 and October 17, in three selections. The warm, dry climate prompted the first sorting of mainly raisined grapes from September 18 to 27, resulting in seven batches and a volume of 148 hl (20% of the harvest). Rainfall from September 21 to 23 triggered fine botrytization.

Optimal concentration required a wait until October 2 for the second sorting. A radical change in the weather, with wind and heat, accelerated the harvest. This second trie, completed by October 11, represented 70% of the volume, with a pronounced botrytized character (17 lots for 540 hl). The final sorting was completed on October 17, with an overall harvest of 12 hl/ha. The 2023 vintage is generous, marked by high acidity and a classic botrytized character, reminiscent of the 2021 vintage. Expect purity and flavors of fresh, candied citrus fruit.
