The history of Château Suduiraut, in Sauternes, dates back centuries. After the total destruction of the property by the Duke d’Epernon in the 1600s, Count Blaise de Suduiraut replanted the vineyard and restored the estate to its former glory. Château Suduiraut is a superb example of 18th century architecture: aristocratic, classical and bright in style, it is surrounded by charming gardens designed by Le Nôtre. The quality of this First Classed Growth is the result of the tenacious attention devoted to its crafting from extremely low yields. Castelnau de Suduiraut is the Château’s second wine and no less care is taken in its production.
Restrained on the nose, but comes into its own after airing with woody, spicy notes enhancing candied fruit. Fresh and silky on the palate, with generous notes of melon, acacia honey and candied citrus through to a taut finish of brown sugar, candied orange and a hint of minerality.
