For its production, we selected a specific terroir from the Château Suduiraut vineyard, planted with Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. This terroir, made up of fine sandy gravel and whose vines have an average age of 20 years, favors the production of fragrant fruits and brings a beautiful freshness to the wine.
Its bright aromatic expression invites you to taste it in its youth.

Vintage conditions

The winter was moderately rainy and cold until February, then the mildness returned and caused fairly early bud burst around March 25. As in 2021, a cold air mass hit the region and caused a severe frost episode on April 1 and 2. The impact was significant with a loss of 40% on our yield. However, having pruned part of our vineyard late, several hectares were fortunately preserved, as were certain vines which had not yet started to bud.

From the month of May, high temperatures favored the resumption of the vegetative cycle of the vines and the sunny character of the vintage. We observed rapid flowering, under beautiful sunshine, 15 days ahead of 2021, the cycle then accelerated thanks to this heat and some rain at the beginning of June. Throughout the month of June, the phenological stages followed quickly. The first wave of heatwave occurred in mid-June, which led to water stress. At the end of June we saw storms with a little hail in our area. Our vineyard was affected between 5 and 30% depending on the plots.

The summer was hot and dry, with two more heatwaves in mid-July and early August. Temperatures exceeded 40 degrees. Some rain in mid-August allowed the vines to withstand this very dry year and promote the development of maturity. Only the young plants began to show significant signs of stress.

The harvest for the dry whites began early, on August 18, breaking all our records. The grapes were beautiful with a very good level of acidity.
We finished harvesting the gravelly plots on August 23, and we continued with a slightly more clayey area from August 24 to 27. The harvest of dry whites ended on August 31 in the plots of the Yquem hill which are from later terroirs. In total, 12 days were needed to harvest this vintage of dry white.

The tasting

Adorned with a pale yellow color, Lions de Suduiraut Blanc Sec 2022 presents a nose open to white flowers, citrus fruits then with aeration it evolves towards notes of passion fruit and a mineral touch.
The attack is round and fresh, with a delicious mid-palate revealing notes of pink pomelo, pear and toasted hazelnut.
We find a persistent finish with aromas of hazelnut, pear and a marked saline side. The character of the vintage is expressed with generosity and great freshness.
