Château Suduiraut 1959

1959 was a very successful year for both red and white wines. The ideal weather during the winegrowing season followed by a very hot summer gave harvests with a high level of concentration. This vintage is very much influenced by the sun. It is reflected in its warm, deep amber colour with mahogany glints. The nose is intense, rich and smooth. Aromas of candied fruit are followed by caramel and baked apple, then fragrances of mild tobacco, cinnamon, dried fruit and crème brûlée. The mouthfeel is voluptuous; flavours coat the palate without a hint of heaviness and the terroir provides a fresh, mineral texture that takes this wine to another dimension. This is a fully developed vintage that expresses the dual nature of Suduiraut’s terroir, even in a very sunny year: opulence and elegance.
