First TN on Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut

A brand new wine has been released from Bordeaux. A new dry white from Château Suduiraut. 2015 Le Blanc Sec  de Suduiraut was released a few months back and I have not found any tasting notes on the web, meaning this might be the first one. Only 600 cases made but will limely double for the 2016 vintage. It will be a little brother of S de Suduiraut. It is now available on la Place.

2015 Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut
Pale lemon yellow. Light peach, apples, pears and some vanilla and spices nose. Fresh acidity, fresh, fruity, apples, pears and peach, some vanilla and spices, minerals finish, touch smoky. Give it a short trip in the decanter if you serve it right now, it doesn't need much air, but ten minutes does it good. 88
