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.
The 1967 vintage is legendary due to a magnificent Indian summer that year. The harvest was very late, towards the end of October, and yielded a concentrated vintage that nonetheless had great acidity due to the lateness. Ageing has allowed it to express the full complexity of the terroir. The colour is deep amber with ruddy shades. The wine is luminous with a youthful appearance. The powerful and delicate nose reveals a complex, well-integrated bouquet with aromas of candied fruit (orange), quince then notes of dried fruit and very fine rancio. The attack is delicate and velvety followed by a well-structured mouthfeel with fine acidity and minerality that is characteristic of the cru. Notes of light caramel, black tea, saffron and dried fruit mingle with notes of orange. It has great aromatic persistence that prolongs the pleasure. The finish is clean and fresh with a hint of bitterness that emphasises the full range of flavours of this wine that is at its peak.
