Description

Details of wine

Located between the Ciron and the Garonne, the territory of the Château Suduirat benefits from the ideal conditions for the development of the noble mold necessary for the Sauternes.

Their wines are of a superfine precision. This 2009 vintage is a wine with enormous aging potential and is part of the line of the great Sauternes of the Château such as those of 1989, 2001 and 2005.
Certified with high environmental value (HEV), the estate includes 91 hectares of vines, on gravelly, sandy and clayey soils. The stones capture the heat of the sun, thus helping the grapes reach maturity more quickly.

It is this unique terroir that gives the wine exceptional opulence.

Produced with 94% Semillon and 6% Sauvignon Blanc it reveals a golden color, fresh and delicate nose. Fruity bouquet of yellow peach and apricot with spicy fragrances. Soft and silky taste with a fresh and elegant finish with a final note of acacia honey.

A Sauternes with great elegance.

Name: Château Suduiraut
Start-up year: 1580
Cultivated hectares: 92
Winemaker name: Michel Essartier
Address: Preignac (France)

The estate took the name of Suduiraut in 1580 on the marriage of Nicole d’Allard to Léonard de Suduiraut. The château was plundered and burned down during the Fronde insurrection, then rebuilt in the 17th century. It was re-named Cru du Roy in the late 18th century on being taken over by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, Jean Joseph Duroy, Baron of Noaillan. The family home then acquired a cartouche featuring the Suduiraut and Duroy coats of arms, which was to give rise to the escutcheon used by Château Suduiraut today. The property was planted with magnificent formal gardens, designed by Le Nôtre, King Louis XIV’s renowned gardener. On 18 April 1855 the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. AXA Millésimes acquired Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate’s remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfil its full potential in recent years.
