white bordeaux

Bordeaux (White)

Although most famous for its red wines, Bordeaux produces outstanding dry whites, the finest of which come from the Graves (Pessac-Léognan) and the Entre-Deux-Mers. Then of course there are the world's most famous sweet white wines from the adjoining appellations of Sauternes and Barsac, the king of which is Château d'Yquem and its wines of legendary longevity. Two grape varieties dominate both the dry and the sweet wines - Sauvignon and Semillon - both of which reach arguably their greatest potential in Bordeaux.

2003 Château Suduiraut, 1er Grand Cru Classé Sauternes Halves x 12
 12 Halves
Again, widely differing opinions. Parker gave the wine 89-93 in Wine Advocate #152 (but with the caveat that he tasted it only once, and that this was very early in its development), 92-95 in Wine Advocate #158 and 95 in Wine Advocate #164. Neal Martin, in Wine Advocate #207, gave the wine 90 points. He doesn't like its richness, describing it as "an unashamedly hedonistic Suduiraut." That about sums up the 2003s in Sauternes.
