If you’re a fan of Bordeaux – especially the sweet wines of Sauternes – the name Château Suduiraut will be no stranger to you. This Sauternes Premier Cru is situated at the southern end of the commune of Preignac, sitting almost literally in the shadow of it illustrious neighbor, Château d’Yquem. A part of the AXA Millésimes portfolio since 1992, Suduiraut’s 92-hectare vineyard is 90% Semillion and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, each averaging about 25 years of age.

What makes the Sauternes region so special is something called Noble Rot, which is a fungal organism known scientifically as Botrytris cinerea, and is almost single-handedly responsible for the world’s greatest sweet wines. Botrytis causes the berries to dehydrate and shrivel, which in turn concentrates the grape sugars. In the case of Sauternes, the region’s proximity to the Garonne River provides the fog and mists that allow this to take place.

Join us as we walk through the vineyards of Suduiraut, guided by Technical Director, Pierre Montégut. We’ll also watch as they bottle the 2006 vintage.

    I do love the way you have framed this challenge and it does present us some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, because of what I have seen, I basically hope as other commentary stack on that men and women stay on issue and not start upon a tirade involving some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this exceptional piece and although I do not agree with this in totality, I regard your standpoint.
