The Story

Classed as a Premier Cru in 1855, it is made from grapes selected from the finest terroirs of the property. This wine is hand crafted at every stage of its elaboration and reveals remarkable finesse and complexity and a golden colour reminiscent of the sun that made it possible. With age the bright gold evolves to a dark amber colour.
With an extensive life-span, it powerfully and harmoniously combines fruit and floral aromas with roasted and candied notes.

Its superlative elegance comes from a match of total opposites: a voluptuous texture, mineral freshness and the heat of spices. Château Suduiraut is designed for all those who enjoy sensory and emotional experiences that are both rich and full of surprises and leave a lasting memory.

Vintage 2015

The harvest period ran from 4th September to 27th October, with five selective pickings in total. We got off to a very early start, with a first selection made during the week from 4th to 11th September, which then continued from 15th to 24th September including both passerillage and botrytis. The yield of 1hl/ha was very small but that is not uncommon for the first wave of harvesting. The second round of selection ran from 15th September to 5th October. These first two selections were small in quantity but big on quality. The must was very rich, with a vibrant fruitiness. The third selection, between 24th September and 9th October, brought in the bulk of the grapes with a superb level of noble rot: this wave gave us both volume and quality, with a yield approaching 7hl/ha. The fourth round of grape selection was completed on 26th October, bringing in fewer grapes but still of excellent quality, followed by one final round of picking between 14th and 27th October. There were smiles all round as the harvest came to an end, with all involved confident that 2015 will give us a magnificent wine with a yield of around 16hl/ha.
