Château Suduirant 2021- 1st Cru Class
Certified High Environmental Value (HVE), the estate consists of 91 hectares of vines on a sandy-clay soil. The stones capture the heat of the sun and thus allow the grapes to reach maturity more quickly. This unique terroir gives the wine all its opulence.
This very filtering and thin soil induces low yields, concentrates the grapes and forces the vine to draw its nourishment deep down. The relationship with the terroir is reinforced and expressed through a strong minerality.
The high density of the plantations (7000 vines/ha) and the high average age of the vines (35 years old) are a guarantee of quality harvests, as well as the reasoned cultivation, the short pruning and the working of the soil. As for the selection of the parcels, it reserves exclusively the best for the Grand Vin Château Suduiraut.
Note that for the 2021 vintage, the Château will have produced only 6000 bottles.
Sémillon is a traditional grape variety of the region. When it is affected by noble rot, its structure in the mouth is ample and brings a lot of fatness and softness to the wine. The wines produced are very aromatic: they evoke scents of honey, grilled dried fruit, acacia flower and candied citrus.
Sauvignon Blanc has typical aromas of this variety such as citrus, white peach and exotic fruits. Vinified as a sweet wine, it brings a touch of acidity to the blend, a guarantee of freshness and aromatic complexity.
