Sauternes Chateau Suau 11

Sauternes Chateau Suau 11


Tasting Notes

In the soil of the communes of Fargues and Sauternes, there is layer of hardpan (iron-oxide cemented sand) which makes vines flourish.
The vineyards that are at the highest elevations and are farthest from the river have the best terroirs and produce the majority of the Crus Classés, including the monumental Château Yquem. Sauternes wines are made from Sémillon, which account for 80% of planted vines, and Sauvignon accounting for 15% of planted vines. A bit of Muscadelle is occasionally used. When they age, they develop a stunning amber color that is denser and darker than other dessert wines.
