With a lengthy history comes a list of accomplishments and triumphs. Such is the case for Chateau Suduiraut, which dates to the seventeenth century. Not only did Suduiraut achieve First Growth status in the 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac, its management pioneered the practice of grafting vines onto American rootstock to thwart the scourge of Phylloxera.

Expert Reviews

92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , August 2011

Bright, pale yellow-gold. Captivating aromas of tropical fruits, vanilla and creme br u lee are complicated by honeyed botrytis. Enters the mouth smooth, balanced and fresh, showing building sweetness and complexity to its pure, rich mango, papaya, ginger and citrus flavors. This large-scaled Sauternes admirably combines power and grace, finishing pure and long. Jean-Rene Martignon, technical director of the AXA-Millesime properties, told me that the grapes were harvested in five successive tries: the first yielded four barrels of wine with very pure botrytis and high acidity, while seven days later a second trie gave more concentrated juice, but both of these passes through the vines went into the estate's second wine, Castelnau de Suduiraut.
