The estate took the name of Suduiraut in 1580 on the marriage of Nicole d'Allard to Léonard de Suduiraut. The château was plundered and burned down during the Fronde insurrection, then rebuilt in the XVII century. It was re-named Cru du Roy in the late 18th century on being taken over by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, Jean Joseph Duroy, Baron of Noaillan. The family home then acquired a cartouche featuring the Suduiraut and Duroy coats of arms, which was to give rise to the escutcheon used by Château Suduiraut today. The property was planted with magnificent formal gardens, designed by Le Nôtre, King Louis XIV's renowned gardener. 

On 18 April 1855 the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. 
AXA Millésimes acquired Château Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate's remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfill its full potential in recent years.


The estate comprises 91 hectares of vines, on gravelly, sandy clay soil. The stones capture the sun's heat, thereby helping the grapes to reach maturity more rapidly. It is this unique terroir that gives the wine its outstanding opulence.
This wine is handcrafted at every stage of its elaboration and reveals a remarkable complexity and a golden colour reminiscent of the sun. With age the bright gold evolves into a dark amber colour.


Average age of vines (35 years).
Environmentally responsible winegrowing methods, short pruning and tillage.
Certified High Environmental Value (HEV)

Château Suduiraut 2009 has a very appealing, bright golden yellow colour. Its complexity is echoed on the nose: candied tropical fruit, white flowers, gingerbread, and gunflint give together a rich yet lively overall result.

The palate is very powerful, with aromas of roast pineapple, candied apricot and barley sugar. Its smoothness is always underpinned by wonderful freshness, giving it great elegance.

The long, fullbodied finish reveals spices, candied fruit and vanilla. This legendary Suduiraut is still coming into its own and requires a little more patience. If you wish to enjoy it now, it would benefit from being decanted for two hours.

Best paired with Roquefort, foie gras, fruit based desserts.
