Château-Suduiraut Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut is the little sibling of the S de Suduiraut dry Bordeaux white we have offered in the past. This sensational blend of, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon showcases a more approachable side of the estate, not to mention extraordinary value given the pedigree. The 2017 vintage is light yellow in color, with aromas of flowers, white fruit and a touch of star anis. The mouthfeel is generous with great tautness. Although still young, this is an appealing year that promises to develop extremely well.

Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Pauillac 2006 750mlThis wine comes from the very oldest vines grown on the historic plots of the Pichon Baron estate in Pauillac. This full-bodied, warm and forceful wine shows power thorough the mid-palate, yet all the ripe, dark fruit is delivered in a velvet texture. A captivating wine which shows Pichon's total commitment to crafting exceptional wines. The flagship estate in Bordeaux in the AXA portfolio is Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron, also known as Pichon Baron. Located in Pauillac, the estate produces some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines in the world. A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller percentages of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the style is one of ripe, intense red & black fruits with lovely floral notes and vanillan oak woven into the palate, along with structured, balanced tannins for long term cellar aging. The label is made in Reims, Champagne, by an old fashioned printer who is the only maker known to still use a method which sprays copper ink over a type of stencil to make these beautiful labels which are clearly one-of-a-kind. Planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2nd Growth estate of Pichon-Baron, has vines which average 30+ years. The property consistently produces top flight wines, and is often referred to as a 'super-second' performing well above its official pedigree. Located across from Chateau Latour and Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, the vineyard is superbly situated on gravelly soil with a full southerly exposure, and much of the vineyard is adjacent to that of Chateau Latour. AXA smarlty hired Jean-Michel Cazes of Lynch-Bages to oversee the vineyard and winemaking in the early 1980s through 2000 which initiated a quality renaissance that continues today.
