Château Suduiraut 2003 3000ml


Château Suduiraut 2003 has an intense golden yellow colour, with amber tones that reflect the maturity of this wine and the solar nature of the year.

The nose initially presents aromas of pastry, fresh almond and aniseed; aeration adds a spicy, honeyed character.

The palate is full-bodied yet taut. Spices and honey are still present, then notes of candied fruit and quince jam.

The density and tautness that were perceptible on the nose are present again in the finish. With great length, the finish offers notes of pepper and candied fruit.

Winery Profile:
The estate took the name of Suduiraut in 1580 on the marriage of Nicole d’Allard to Léonard de Suduiraut. The château was plundered and burned down during the Fronde insurrection, then rebuilt in the XVII century. It was re-named Cru du Roy in the late 18th century on being taken over by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, Jean Joseph Duroy, Baron of Noaillan. The family home then acquired a cartouche featuring the Suduiraut and Duroy coats of arms, which was to give rise to the escutcheon used by Château Suduiraut today. The property was planted with magnificent formal gardens, designed by Le Nôtre, King Louis XIV’s renowned gardener.

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 Château 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 fulfil its full potential in recent years.
