Château Suduiraut produces Sauternes aimed at younger market

Published:  03 October, 2011

The Bordeaux 1er Cru producer, Château Suduiraut has launched a Sauternes specifically aimed at a younger market.

Part of the AXA Millesimes portfolio 'Les Lions de Suduiraut' is marketed as a fresher, fruitier, and more vibrant than its traditional counterparts.

Made from hand-picked grapes with 'noble rot', the wine is created for those ready to explore new wines, new ways to drink them, and new foods with which to match them.

The vineyards have a rich mineral seam as well as granite, sand and clay soils, enabling the winemaker Pierre Montégut to select a palette of small lots with varied characteristics to create his assemblage.

The packaging has a dramatic gold label featuring the rampant lions of the Chateau's crest.

Available internationally via key negociants from early October (rrp £15), Avery's of Bristol.
