Sauternes 1er Cru Classé

Château Suduiraut is a perfect example of 18th century architecture: noble, stately and full of light. The château is surrounded by magnificent gardens designed by Le Notre, which make the estate even more attractive. The soil is composed of sandy clay and gravel.

Suduiraut is located in the commune of Preignac in the heart of the Ciron valley. The Château's privileged position fosters, from the month of September onwards, the growth of botrytis cinerea (the famous "noble rot") on the grapes. These are picked one by one in several waves. After the grapes have been pressed, the must is fermented in oak barrels for 18 to 24 months before bottling.

Winery Profile

Premier Cru Classé de Sauternes

Suduiraut has often been described as an close runner-up to Sauternes' clear leader d'Yquem, because the wine has a viscous ripeness that coats your mouth as if the whole were wrapped in melted butter and cream. Add to this a delicious fruit, like pineapple and peaches soaked in syrup, and you can get some idea of the expansive lusciousness of which Suduiraut is capable.

After a long period in the 1970s and '80s when, despite many excellent vintages, Suduiraut didn't shine, the property was bought by insurance giant AXA-Millesimes in 1992 and by the end of the decade it was back snapping at Yquem's heels. The 90-ha estate produces anything from 30,000 - 120,000 bottles a year. Second wine: Castelnau de Suduiraut. Best years: 2010, 09, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01, 99, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 90, 89, 86, 82.

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison."
