The History of Chateau Suduirat can be traced to 1580 when Nicole d’Allard was married to Leonard de Suduiraut. The estate was next inherited by Joseph du Roy, who renamed it Ancien Cru du Roy. So it remained for over two hundred years until, in 1831, Nicolas Edme Guillot purchased the estate and reclaimed the name Suiderat (although Ancien Cru du Roy still appears the label). Under Guillot’s stewardship (and for the next two generations) the chateau excelled, until 1929, when lax practises by the next generation saw the estate near bankruptcy. In 1940 Suduirat was sold to the industrialist Leopold-Francois Fonquernie, and the wines gradually returned to their former glory.
Today Suduirat’s 220 acres of Semillon (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%) are owned by the same group that controls Chateau Lynch-Bages and Chateau Pichon-Baron. The harvest is still traditionally one of the earliest in the Sauternes AOC, producing the nuanced and delicately styled Sauternes the Chateau is famed for.
This wine is medium gold in color, with a flamboyant, buttery, intensely intoxicating nose of smoked tropical fruits, especially pineapple, melted caramel, and honeyed orange. Unctuously textured, with superb, full-bodied richness, good underlying acidity, and a stunning finish, it should have 30+ years of longevity.

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Suduiraut is in a different league to its barrel showing when it seemed to lack a little vitality. This does not quite have the vigour of Yquem on the nose, but I think that it is rather closed at the moment but it unfurls gracefully with lanolin, beeswax, honeysuckle...but tightly coiled. The palate is viscous and waxy on the entry, good acidity, a shave of ginger, marmalade, lemon curd and apricot. It has a sensual residue of clear honey on the finish. Wonderful.
