Château Suduiraut

A first Cru Classé in Sauternes since 1855

About the winery
The terroir is essential in making a great wine. Château Suduiraut's vineyard is mainly composed with sand and gravel. This poor and very filtering soil is perfect for the Sémillon growing. This grape variety bring all the complexity, the elegance and the aromatic diversity to our Cru Classé. The Sauvignon Blanc, present in our clay soil, delivers all the freshness and the balance to our wines. In Sauternes, the climate is also primordial. The Appellation is crossed by a little river, the Ciron, who create a unique micro-climate. This element is responsible of the development of the noble rot. During the harvest, the very experienced local pickers, that we know well and that we employ year after year, have to hand pick exclusively and very carefully the berries reached by the noble rot. The key word to this is a strict selection of the various plots in the vineyard, according to the age and the nature of the vines.

History & Geography
The estate dates back to the XIVth century and has gone by the name Château Suduiraut since 1580. A feudal castle used to stand here in Medieval times, but it was destroyed during the Religious Wars and once again during the Fronde Rebellion. In 1670, Blaise de Suduiraut rebuilt the castle in the sober and calssical style of the XVIIth century. At the same time, the vineyard which had been devastated in the past, was reconstructed. And, some time later, the magnificent gardens designed by Le Nôtre were added to complete the property. In 1855, the exceptional quality of the estate's terroir was recognised and Château Suduiraut became a First Cru Classé. The Château remained in the Suduiraut family for over two centuries and has belonged to just four successive owners since then. Château Suduiraut is owned by AXA Millésimes since 1992.
