Château Suduiraut is located in Sauternes, Bordeaux, and is known for its expensive sweet wines, produced mainly from Semillon. In 1855, it was classified as a Premier Cru manufacturer in the Sauternes and Barsac classification of 1855. Today, the vines are planted mainly with Semillon, as well as small parcels of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris. The property, which borders the appellation's main estate, Château d'Yquem, has more than 90 hectares (220 acres) of gravel vineyards. , sandy soils off the banks of the Gironde, whose moisture content (and the moisture content of the nearby streams that feed the river) contributes to the development of Botrytis at the end of the growing season. As is often the case in the best Sauternes estates, harvesting is done by "probing" (successive passes through the vineyard) to ensure that all bunches are at the optimal Botrytis level when harvested, and only the best Botrytis infested grapes end up in the Château Grand Wine Suduiraut. The great wine is aged in 50% new French oak yeast lees for 24 months. This process is controlled barrel by barrel to facilitate the distinction between the best wine and the wines that will become the Quinta's second and third wines. early in the season, and the wine itself is available when young. In 2011, Château Suduiraut produced a third wine, Lions de Suduiraut. The castle owes its name to its former owner: the 16th century nobleman Leonard de Soudouiro. The property has a controversial history, from pillaging during the 17th-century Fronde uprisings to the ornamental gardens designed by Le Nôtre (the famous gardener who designed the gardens of the Palace of Versailles outside Paris). It was acquired by investment firm AXA Millésimes in 1992. AXA's holdings include Château Pichon Baron in Medoc, Domaine de l'Arlot in Nuits Saint-Georges and Quinta do Noval in the Douro.
