This estate took the name Suduiraut in the l;ate 16th century. In 1855 Suduiraut was ranked premier cru in the classification of Gironde properties. In 1992 the estate was taken over by the insurance company AXA, which also owns Pichon Baron in Pauillac and a number of other properties in Bordeaux and elsewhere.

This is always one of the longest living of Sauternes and a personal favourite. Its ageing capabilities sometimes reveal themselves as a slight obscurity in the wine’s extreme youth i.e. Suduiraut can be hard to evaluate in its infancy! I loved the 2007, however: A slightly reticent nose, but long on spice and the fruit an exotic blend of banana, mango and apricot. The palate is nutty-rich and highly structured for the long haul. This is sweet and backward and full of minerals; in fact the finish is laced with dry minerals. There’s a long, steely thrust at the core. Serious stuff! Note taken in primeurs week
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
