2009 Château Suduiraut Sauternes, Bordeaux, France - 375ml
ABOUT THIS WINE
A blend of 92% Sémillon and 8% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged in 40 % new barrels, 60 % one-year-old barrel for 18 months. Château Suduiraut, classed as a Premier Cru in 1855, is made from grapes selected from the finest terroirs of the property.
This wine is handcrafted at every stage of its elaboration and reveals a remarkable complexity and a golden color reminiscent of the sun. With age the bright gold evolves into a dark amber colour. With an extensive life-span, it powerfully and harmoniously combines fruit and floral aromas with roasted and candied notes.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The history of Château Suduiraut, in Sauternes, goes back to centuries. After the total destruction of the property by the Duke d’Epernon in the 1600’s, Count Blaise de Suduiraut replanted the vineyard and restored the estate to its former glory. On 18 April 1855 the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. AXA Millésimes acquired Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate’s remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfill its full potential in recent years.
