The colour is deep amber with ruddy shades. The wine is luminous with a youthful appearance. The powerful and delicate nose reveals a complex, well-integrated bouquet with aromas of candied fruit (orange), quince then notes of dried fruit and very fine rancio. The attack is delicate and velvety followed by a well-structured mouthfeel with fine acidity and minerality that is characteristic of the cru. Notes of light caramel, black tea, saffron and dried fruit mingle with notes of orange. It has great aromatic persistence that prolongs the pleasure. The finish is clean and fresh with a hint of bitterness that emphasises the full range of flavours of this wine that is at its peak.

Wine SpectatorA classic vintage for Suduiraut, this rich, full-bodied, expansive, viscous, fully mature wine has a wonderful honeyed, almond, caramel-scented bouquet, rich, sweet, deep, succulent flavors, full body, and a muscular, aggressive finish. The 1967 is perhaps not a match for the 1959 or 1976, but it is certainly the best wine produced at this chateau between these two vintages. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 3/88.
