S De Suduiraut Vieilles Vignes Blanc Sec 2015

$86.00

S de Suduiraut Vieilles Vignes is light yellow in colour with green glints. The nose is subtle and initially reveals aromas of crusty bread, vanilla and spices. Notes of white flowers, lemon and aniseed appear after aeration. This complex and delicate nose is rounded off with white fruit and gunflint. On the palate, the wine is powerful with a wonderful perception of acidity; aniseed and pear are once again apparent.
The beautifully long finish expresses notes of almond, spices from the barrel and minerality. A wine that is still young but showing great potential, and which can be enjoyed now with decantation.

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.
