"The 2009 is one of the greatest wines ever produced from the estate. It has a riveting bouquet of quince, honey, pear and a touch of clarified butter that is beautifully defined, offering scents of yellow flowers with continued aeration. It is a little heavier and more intense than its peers at this stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity and immense purity.

"The 2009 is one of the greatest wines ever produced from the estate. It has a riveting bouquet of quince, honey, pear and a touch of clarified butter that is beautifully defined, offering scents of yellow flowers with continued aeration. It is a little heavier and more intense than its peers at this stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity and immense purity. The finish offers crisp honey, quince and clementine notes laden with botrytis that is counterpoised by wonderful acidity. It possesses an unerring sense of completeness and composure that is irresistible. Bravo! Drink now-2050." ~N.M.

Chateau De Suduiraut

View all from Chateau De Suduiraut
Chateau De SuduirautThe estate takes the name of Suduiraut in 1580, following the marriage of Nicole d'Allard with Léonard de Suduiraut. The castle, looted and burned during the Fronde, was rebuilt in the seventeenth century, and renamed Cru du Roy in the late eighteenth century, following its recovery by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, Jean Joseph Duroy, Baron de Noaillan. The house is adorned with a cartouche where the arms of Suduiraut and Duroy, at the origin of the current coat of arms of Château Suduiraut, meet. Beautiful French gardens, designed by Le Nôtre, famous gardener of King Louis XIV, come to decorate the property.

On April 18, 1855, the estate is classified Premier Cru when ranking the wines of the Gironde.

It was taken over in 1992 by AXA Millésimes, whose mission is to preserve and perpetuate the great know-how of the history and culture of wine with one objective: to allow great wines, from vineyards with glorious past, to express their full potential.

Dessert in a bottle

"Skip the pie at your Thanksgiving feast this year and enjoy a bottle of Chateau de Suduiraut Sauternes instead! This beautiful bottle opens with a strong nose of summer fruit and ripe pear. The mouth is full bodied with a silky texture exhibiting sweet characteristics of fresh honey and marmalade. The finish is elegant and long with notes of butter and cream."
