This Sauternes estate originally took the name Suduiraut in 1580, upon the marriage of Nicole d’Allard to Leonard de Suduiraut. After being plundered and burned down during the Fronde insurrection, in the 17th century it was rebuilt and renamed Cru du Roy by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, who planted magnificent formal gardens designed by Le Notre, King Louis XIV’s renowned gardener. The estate was designated Premier Cru status in the 1855 Classification.

AXA Millesimes acquired Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate’s remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. 92 hectares of vineyard are planted in sandy, gravelly soil superbly suited to Semillon and Sauvignon grapes. Semillon, which represents 90% of the Suduiraut vineyard’s vine population, is the preferred variety for Sauternes. Its very thin skin is particularly sensitive to the Botrytis Cinerea that gives rise to noble rot, which in turn results in a wine which is concentrated both in sweetness and aroma. The blend is then rounded off with the addition of about 10% Sauvignon Blanc.

The vines’ age (a majority of them are over 30 years old) is a guarantee of exceptional quality, giving well-nourished and more concentrated grapes.

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce the 2010 Chateau Suduiraut 2022 Ex-Chateau Release, a truly magnificent white wine hailing from the prestigious Sauternes sub-region of Bordeaux, France. This wine is a blend of the finest Sauternes varietals, meticulously crafted by the esteemed producer, Chateau Suduiraut.

In the glass, this wine presents a beautiful golden hue, reflecting the expertise and care that went into its production. The nose is a symphony of aromas, with luscious notes of ripe peaches, apricots, and honeycomb, mingling with hints of exotic spices and a subtle touch of oak. With each swirl, the bouquet unfolds, revealing layers of complexity that invite you to delve deeper into this sensory journey.

On the palate, the 2010 Chateau Suduiraut 2022 Ex-Chateau Release exudes elegance and finesse. The richness of the fruit is balanced by a vibrant acidity, creating a harmonious interplay that dances on the taste buds. Flavors of ripe tropical fruits, such as pineapple and mango, meld with the honeyed sweetness and the subtle nuances of vanilla and caramel. The wine's opulent mouthfeel is accompanied by a lingering finish that leaves a lasting impression.

This wine is a testament to the exceptional 2010 vintage, a year characterized by ideal weather conditions that allowed for the development of botrytis cinerea, also known as noble rot. This natural occurrence, which concentrates the sugars and flavors in the grapes, contributes to the unique and remarkable character of Sauternes wines.

With an alcohol content of 14.0%, this wine showcases a perfect balance between power and elegance. As for the closure, a traditional cork seals this bottle, preserving its delicate flavors for years to come.
