A long journey through time The estate took the name of Suduiraut in 1580 on the marriage of Nicole d'Allard to Leonard de Suduiraut. The chateau was plundered and burned down during the Fronde insurrection, then rebuilt in the 17th century. It was re named Cru du Roy in the late 18th century on being taken over by a nephew of the Suduiraut family, Jean Joseph Duroy, Baron of Noaillan. The family home then acquired a cartouche featuring the Suduiraut and Duroy coats of arms, which was to give rise to the escutcheon used by Chateau Suduiraut today. The property was planted with magnificent formal gardens, designed by Le Notre, King Louis XIV's renowned gardener. On 18 April 1855 the estate was classed as a Premier Cru during the official wine classification programme in the Gironde winegrowing area. AXA Millesimes acquired Suduiraut in 1992 with the aim of preserving and perpetuating the estate's remarkable tradition of vineyard management and winemaking. Inspired by the great Suduiraut wines of the past, the new management has enabled this great vineyard to fulfil its full potential in recent years.
